Remote sensing, as a rapidly improving technology for gathering environmental data using a wide range of satellite platforms, plays a major role in spatio-temporal earth surface monitoring. Throughout this chapter we introduce the basic remote sensing methods and explain their use in GRASS. The tools for image processing and remote sensing applications will be illustrated using a SPOT 1 HRV/PAN image data set available as extension for the Spearfish data set at or other GRASS web mirror sites.
