Aerial Photos and Satellite Images

Photographs and other images of the Earth, Moon, and other planets and satellites taken from the air or from space—also known as remotely sensed images—permit accurate mapping of land cover and make landscape features understandable on regional, continental, and even global scales. Transient phenomena, such as seasonal vegetation vigor and contaminant discharges, can be studied by comparing images acquired at different times.
