Careers in Remote Sensing

Remote Sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. In modern uses, the term generally refers to the use of aerial sensor technologies to detect and classify objects on earth by means of propagated signals making it possible to collect data on dangerous or inaccessible areas. Latest applications of remote sensing like monitoring deforestation, glacial features in Arctic and Antarctic regions and depth sounding of coastal and ocean depth have made this science most popular.
