Satellite images are not all the same. In our Info Box on remote sensing you can find out about the differences and you can also discover how to predict the weather and what is meant by a "bit".
Animations and illustrations help you understand the physical background of remote sensing. What is more, they also provide an easily accessible introduction to sensors such as radars, to the manifold methods of analysing digital images and to the fields of application of remote sensing.
You can choose between a beginner's and a more advanced version of the Info Box:
|The beginner's version of the Info Box is primarily addressed to younger users. Here, you can find out more about the physical basics and the fascinating characteristics of remote sensing and satellite images.|
