Access to satellite low and high resolution data & resources.


Where exactly are the Earth observation satellites? What do they actually see? What is really meant by spatial and spectral resolution?We present a brief guide to remote sensing.


As you may imagine, there is more to remote sensing than space satellites alone. The term refers to all the many technologies that make it possible to obtain information on an object using instruments that are not in direct contact with it. The instruments fitted to aircraft so that they can observe our planet are also remote sensing devices. As for Earth observation satellites, they cover a variety of devices with very different characteristics located at varying distances from the subject of scrutiny.
