Remote sensing from aircraft and satellite platforms has revolutionized mapping and monitoring of the Earth’s surface. With the recent availability of high resolution satellite imagery combined with advances in digital image processing, remote sensing has proven essential in environmental applications. Detailed digital images recorded in multiple wavelengths provide more and better information than ever before. Earth observation from space has fundamentally changed our thinking about the planet on which we live and solidified much of the environmental movement. With this technology, we can better utilize resources and understand the consequences of our actions.
