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

    It would have been nice if the world could really practice really use these applications to reality and find solutions to burning issues facing the Nations & the Globe.

  3. Thanks for sharing this article. I will really love to know more on how remote sensing can be used to map out poverty extent.
