Remote sensing

The chosen artefact of remote sensing is another widely used method of transferring data through satellite, but it is more applicable in scientific research areas, such as geophysics and planetary science, as well as for military purposes.

 

Referring to the definition of remote sensing written on the CSIRO website, remote sensing can provide detail and up-to-date geographic information via satellite communication. Traditionally, geographical information can only be achieved through field measurement, which is a difficult and time consuming task.

 

Although remote sensing was a research artefact, it also gets into people’s daily life. For example, Google map and Google Earth use data gathered through remote sensing technology and display the data in more comprehensive images.
