25 Remote Sensing Applications that You Will be Surprised to Know
Satellites have revolutionized the acquisition of information. It is not just information acquisition, their existence contributed a great deal to the knowledge of the outer space.
One of the many innovations of satellite technology is remote sensing. Remote sensing has diverse applications. Some of them include weather and agricultural applications. However, remote sensing has gone beyond that. Let us consider 25 remote sensing applications you will be surprised to know:
1. Determine the perfect habitat suitable for pandas
Bamboo is the main meal of pandas. Habitat is important for these rare animals. Remote sensing technologies such as fragmentation and corridor mapping are used for protecting endangered pandas. Remote sensing is also used to map out areas rich in bamboo.
2. Determine factors contributing to poverty
Many governments have implemented Remote Sensing techniques in order to obtain a clear picture of areas full of poverty so that they can supplement what is lacking to improve the life of inhabitants of such locale or region.
