› Find signed collectible books: 'Digital Aerial Survey: Theory and Practice'
Rapid advances in digital camera technology, real-time satellite differential global positioning systems, and digital imaging from airborne platforms have yielded new opportunities for on-the-fly, in situ digital mapping when used in conjunction with state-of-the-art digital photogrammetric workstations.
Written by active participants in the promotion of airborne digital mapping systems, Digital Aerial Survey: Theory and Practice is a comprehensive manual that examines the systems available for data capture and photogrammetric processing. Starting from first principles it develops a solid foundation in digital imaging technology and aerial survey practices. It covers the very lastest digital air cameras, critically analyzes their performance, and addresses all aspects of airborne operation, from the aircraft and GPS navigation to survey flight planning. The text includes a CD-ROM that provides Excel files that calculate mission/ photographic parameters to make the planning of an actual survey straightforward.
Digital Aerial Survey: Theory and Practice provides the opportunity to appreciate, understand, and apply photo-interpretation, reconnaissance, and photomapping techniques to a variety of planning, resource harvesting, pollution prevention, civil engineering, and disaster mitigation activities.

› Find signed collectible books: 'The Digital Image'
Over recent years, there have been numerous improvements and developments in the technology of imaging, including changes in resolution, quality of imaging and the diversity of cameras. With the increase in diversity of cameras has come a reduction in price, but the user needs to be aware of the capability of a particular camera when being sought for a specific use. More than ever, The Digital Image is an important book to guide readers through the terminology, developments and applications which together provide an overview that will inform users of imaging technology.
This new edition will therefore be the definitive handbook for digital imaging, enabling the reader to understand the technology, terms, relationships and to follow developments in this rapidly growing sector of imaging. Digital imagery offers much more than film by way of its versatility, manipulability and convenience of use, all of which are exemplified in this book. As such the book will be relevant for anyone using images and digital cameras, but especially in the commercial sectors of imaging, publishing, mapping and remote sensing and many related areas. It also forms an accessible guide to students and staff in colleges and universities, particularly in the disciplines of information technology, photography, media studies, art, electronics, physics and any subject that uses images as a data source.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Erdös on Graphs: His Legacy of Unsolved Problems'
This book is a tribute to Paul Erd\H{o}s, the wandering mathematician once described as the "prince of problem solvers and the absolute monarch of problem posers." It examines -- within the context of his unique personality and lifestyle -- the legacy of open problems he left to the world after his death in 1996. Unwilling to succumb to the temptations of money and position, Erd\H{o}s never had a home and never held a job. His "home" was a bag or two containing all his belongings and a record of the collective activities of the mathematical community. His "job" was one at which he excelled: identifying a fundamental roadblock in some particular line of approach and capturing it in a well-chosen, often innocent-looking problem, whose solution would likewise provide insight into the underlying theory. By cataloguing the unsolved problems of Erd\H{o}s in a comprehensive and well-documented volume, the authors hope to continue the work of an unusual and special man who fundamentally influenced the field of mathematics.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Magical Mathematics: The Mathematical Ideas That Animate Great Magic Tricks'
Magical Mathematics reveals the secrets of amazing, fun-to-perform card tricks--and the profound mathematical ideas behind them--that will astound even the most accomplished magician. Persi Diaconis and Ron Graham provide easy, step-by-step instructions for each trick, explaining how to set up the effect and offering tips on what to say and do while performing it. Each card trick introduces a new mathematical idea, and varying the tricks in turn takes readers to the very threshold of today's mathematical knowledge. For example, the Gilbreath Principle--a fantastic effect where the cards remain in control despite being shuffled--is found to share an intimate connection with the Mandelbrot set. Other card tricks link to the mathematical secrets of combinatorics, graph theory, number theory, topology, the Riemann hypothesis, and even Fermat's last theorem.
Diaconis and Graham are mathematicians as well as skilled performers with decades of professional experience between them. In this book they share a wealth of conjuring lore, including some closely guarded secrets of legendary magicians. Magical Mathematics covers the mathematics of juggling and shows how the I Ching connects to the history of probability and magic tricks both old and new. It tells the stories--and reveals the best tricks--of the eccentric and brilliant inventors of mathematical magic. Magical Mathematics exposes old gambling secrets through the mathematics of shuffling cards, explains the classic street-gambling scam of three-card monte, traces the history of mathematical magic back to the thirteenth century and the oldest mathematical trick--and much more.

Primary data acquisition is the front end of mapping, GIS and remote sensing and involves: aviation, navigation, photography, cameras (film and digital systems), GPS systems, surveying (ground control), photogrammetry, computerized systems and above all - keeping abreast of modern techniques. This book deals with differential GPS systems, survey flight management systems (both simple and sophisticated), film types, modern film survey cameras such as LH RC-30, Z/I RMK-TOP, digital cameras, infrared methods, laser profilers, airborne laser mapping, satellite systems, laboratory processing (chemical and digital), and camera platforms (fixed wing and helicopter). A fresh approach to the subject includes: soft-copy photogrammetry using desktop computerized systems, film scanners and direct digital camera inputs. Comparisons are made between old film-based technologies and the new digital camera systems, including the Z/I modular digital mapping camera and the LH "push-broom" ADS 40 camera. The book should be useful to survey operators, aerial photographers, photogrammetrists, surveyors, cartographers and mapping scientists, GIS specialists and the new generation of "desk-top" mapmakers. It is a standard reference for survey practitioners, civil engineers and planner, flight crews, and academics and students in surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing, GIS and earth sciences.
