Satellite images are being sent from orbit to earth in digital form. Remote sensing products that have originally been analogue, for example aerial images, are more and more available in digital form as well. In fact, every step from raw data to finished product such as a thematic map or  the modelling of harvest is processed digitally. For this purpose, a profound knowledge of data types, file formats, arithmetic operations, computer performance or data archiving is vital. This is an ideal starting point for many practical and descriptive examples for computer science lessons in schools.
