What is Remote Sensing?

December 14th, 2007 | by admin |

Lillesand et al. (2004) define remote sensing as “the science and art of
obtaining information about an object … through the analysis of data acquired
by a device that is not in contact with the object.” This includes sensors that
measure gravitational, magnetic, or electric forces; sonic devices; and optical
and microwave imagers that sense electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Scripts
by Jack™ deal mostly with remotely-sensed EMR data from a variety of
multispectral (MS) systems.
