Text and table sequence

The text and table sequence is driven by establishing your mapping needs and the environment you are working in. A series of separate steps (steps 1-5 below) link to separate tables that let you determine if your application is feasible, how you would use remotely sensed data, and contacts to experts who can help you with the project.

If you have not already filled in the table of mapping needs, you can do so here. This information will be used to drive the processes outlined below.

To find out how remote sensing works (so you can understand the detail presented in the toolkit and other discussions of remote sensing in your discipline area), go to Terrestrial Remote Sensing Help

  1. Can I use remote sensing for my mapping and monitoring needs in a terrestrial environment?
    Work out if your mapping/monitoring requirement has already been implemented using remote sensing data, how it compares to field techniques and what is the indicative cost.

  2. What are the commercially available remotely sensed data dimensions and sources? (download Adobe Reader 108KB)
    A listing of the commercially available remote sensors of their: data type, sensor (platform), spatial scale, extent (GRE), resolution (spectral & radiometric & temporal), frequence (time of day), source/cost and archive.

  3. How do I use remote sensing for work in terrestrial environments? (download Adobe Reader 206KB)
    Inspect a worked sequence of how to use remote sensing to address your requirements, including: data to buy, how to process, hardware and software and personnel, output product, who can do this, use of field data and indicative costs.

  4. What are the terrestrial remote sensing mapping capabilities? (download Adobe Reader 205KB)
    Determine your mapping and monitoring options when you know which environmental variable you want to map and visa versa using the Terrestrial Remote Sensing Mapping Capability Matrix.

  5. Who could I contact for expert advice on remote sensing in terrestrial environments?
    For 'feasible' applications, explain what additional research is necessary to make the application operational.

  6. Where can I find additional technical material to support my application?
    Refer to the list of links to detailed on-line and personal contacts for how to do this.
