From the CRC Press site for [Image Analysis, Classification, and Change Detection in Remote Sensing: With Algorithms for ENVI/IDL, Second Edition](http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781420087130):
> This popular introduction to the processing of remote sensing imagery has been updated to include coverage of the latest versions of the ENVI software environment. This new edition covers support vector machines and other kernel-based methods. Illustrating many programming examples in the array-oriented language ID, the text includes coverage of basic Fourier, wavelet, principal components and minimum noise fraction transformations; convolution filters, topographic modeling, image-to-image registration and ortho-rectification; image fusion; supervised and unsupervised land cover classification with neural networks; hyperspectral analysis; multivariate change detection.
I was excited to hear that [GPULib](http://www.txcorp.com/products/GPULib/) was used in this version of the book. Mort says:
> In the text I discuss routines for nonlinear principal component analysis, supervised classification and nonlinear clustering, and explain that they can take advantage of GPULib/CUDA, if installed. (I use your routine GPU_DETECT() to check for GPULib).
*Full disclosure: I work for Tech-X Corporation and worked on the IDL bindings and examples for GPULib.*
