SEMINAR ON REMOTE SENSING

Prepared By, Divyesh Patel

Guided by, Shafeequerrahman S. Ahmed

INTRODUCTION
• • • • Early 1800’s – Louis Daguerre – beginning of photography 1850s- 1900’s – Photographs taken by captive balloons, pigeons World War I – Aerial photography 1920s – Photogrammetry – Routine applications for government programs – Mapping, surveys, etc. World War II – Use of electromagnetic spectrum increases to include infrared and microwave “Cold War” – extensive use of reconnaissance techniques – launching of ‘spy’ satellites 1960s –TIROS – meteorological satellite – First use of term “remote sensing”

What is REMOTE SENSING?
Remote Sensing is the science (and to some extent, art) of acquiring information about the Earth's surface without actually being in contact with it.

REMOTE SENSING - Platform
• • • • • • Platform Altitude(km.) Geostationary satellite Polar Orbiting satellite Space Shuttle Jet Aircraft Airplane Ground 36000 500-1000 240-350 10-12 0.3-7.5 Few Metres

Types of REMOTE SENSING
Active Remote Sensing Passive Remote Sensing

How REMOTE SENSING done?

REMOTE SENSING RECEPTION

Why REMOTE SENSING is required?

Earthquake Prediction

DISADVANTAGES OF REMOTE SENSING
• Expensive to build and operate!!!! • Measurement uncertainty can be large • Data interpretation can be difficult • need to understand theoretically how the instrument is making the measurements • need to understand measurement uncertainties • need to have some knowledge of the phenomena you are sampling

APPLICATIONS OF REMOTE SENSING
• • • • • • • • Agriculture Forestry Geology Hydrology Sea Ice Land Cover & Land Use Mapping Oceans & Coastal Monitoring
