Remote sensing may be defined as the collection and interpretation of information about an object, area or event without being in physical contact with the object. Aircraft and satellites are the common platforms for remote sensing of the earth and its natural resources. Aerial photography in the visible portion of the electromagnetic wavelength was the initial stage of remote sensing, but technological developments have enabled the acquisition of information at other wavelengths including near infrared, thermal infrared and microwave.
