Remotely Sensed Data EMP 580 Fall 2015 Dr.

Remotely Sensed Data EMP 580 Fall 2015 Dr. Jim Graham Materials from Sara Hanna Remotely Sensed Data Remotely Sensed data is: Acquired remotely from the observer This makes it different from field surveys

Acquired by: Satellites Airplanes UAVs/UAS/Drones Automated Stations? Active vs. Passive

Sensors can be active or passive Active sensors send out a signal and measure the returned signal: LiDAR Radar Passive sensors measure energy emitted by another source, usually the sun Most of the data we use (except DEMs) are from passive sensors so well be talking about them from now on

Most data is downloaded in a compressed format Large file sizes Level 1 Data Corrected for radiometric and geometric accuracy GeoTIFF data format Separate file for each band

Commercial SPOT 1986-2014 (1.5 20m) IKONOS 1999 (1 -4 m) Quickbird 2001 (0.60 - 2.4 m) World-View-2 2009 (0.46 1.84m)

WorldView-3 2014 (0.31 3.7 m) Disaster Monitoring Constellation (DMC) 2002-Present Five satellites, 30-40 m in 3-4 bands Electromagnetic Radiation Most remotely sensed data is derived from Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). This includes:

Visible light Infrared light (heat) X-Rays Radar Etc. To use RS data we need to review some information on EM
