July 29, 2013 -- The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is pleased to announce the launch of its first eBook -- Manual of Airborne Topographic Lidar -- on the Kindle platform. “Making the Manual available as an eBook gives customers the option to have it available at their fingertips on either a Kindle or on another device with a Kindle app,” said ASPRS Communications Director Kim Tilley. “This is perfect for students and those working in the field who don’t want to carry around the printed book, or for those needing quick delivery with no mailing costs.” The eBook is available through Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E3FWBO6.
The print copy of the ASPRS Manual of Airborne Topographic Lidar was published in late 2012 and is the first comprehensive manual published on lidar technology. Edited by Michael Renslow, an industry leader on the topic, the book pulls chapter material from lidar industry experts worldwide. Click on these links for the FOREWORD and full Table of Contents.
Moving forward, ASPRS expects to make more of its manuals available in the eBook format, including the recently published Sixth Edition of the Manual of Photogrammetry. “We realize that digital books are the way of the future and that the large manuals we publish will be more accessible for students and others in the digital format,” Tilley said. Professors are encouraged to adopt ASPRS manuals as course material for their courses in GIS, Remote Sensing, and Photogrammetry. Go to the ASPRS Bookstore at http://www.asprs.org/Publications-Other/Bookstore.html to see all of the Manuals available from ASPRS. Student Member and Member pricing is a significant savings off of the list price.
