Remote sensing

5 minute introduction… to RS

Quite a few people seem puzzled when I tell them that my job involves remote sensing. It seems that remotely sensed imagery is becoming ever more present, with it being used across the news media and embedded into online maps, but very few people know that there is so much more to it. The video embedded in this post is aimed at total newcomers to remote sensing. If you know almost anything about remote sensing then this introductory video will be too simple for you as it aims to introduce some of the terms and concepts that one might encounter when talking to those in the industry.
