Remote Sensing – Data & Technology A Walk through from Past to Present

Remote sensing is defined as the science of acquiring of information from a distance. Remote sensors collect data by detecting the energy that is reflected from Earth. These sensors can be on satellites or mounted on aircraft. Remote Sensing has a growing relevance in the modern information society. It has become a key service that is used widely in many civil applications such as agriculture, forestry, mining (and prospecting for many types of resources), map making, research in geosciences, urban planning, disaster management and even land speculation. Remote sensing, Earth observation, related Geographical Information Systems (GIS), plus the interpretation and use of this type of data are today often referred to today as Geomatics. In this session let us walk through, from the past to present on the growth & development in the Remote sensing domain from data and technology perspective.
