How to select the best imagery for your remote sensing project


Do you need to understand how to choose a remote sensing approach for your work? This webinar will prepare you to select the best imagery to meet the needs and objectives of your next project. Advantages and disadvantages of digital vs. analog imagery will be discussed. The characteristics common to all imagery will be presented, defined, and examples provided. The final selection of the best imagery is always determined by balancing these characteristics with cost. The webinar will conclude with a discussion of these tradeoffs and costs of imagery.
