he goal of the Manual of Remote Sensing-4 was to create a more effective, affordable, and durable Man-
ual, and to broaden its scope to include economic and societal benefits. Effective in the sense that MRS-
4’s content could be found online as an enhanced e-book; affordable in the sense that content could be
retrieved by everyone on an annual subscription basis; and durable in the sense that it could be easily up-
dated as a “living” manual through fresh, contributor-driven and vetted material as technologies advance.
It does not reprise the extensive mathematical basis for remote sensing given in MRS-2, but instead focuses on system
designs; data processing, storage, and retrieval; and on societal applications. A key feature of this concept is to facil-
itate timely updates of cutting edge or new developments from a wide spectrum of sophisticated contributors facile
collectively with the technological, mathematical, and utilitarian aspects of Earth and space sciences.
