Remote sensing is the science and technology of obtaining information about objects from a distance and without physical contact.

This enables us to:

  • Observe patterns and relationships which cannot be seen from the ground.
  • Enables us to view invisible information that the human eye cannot perceive by using sophisticated sensors.
  • Collect data for large areas of landscape.
  • Repeatedly observe areas to detect change.

Remotely sensed data can take many forms from aerial photography to satellite imagery.
