Remote Sensing: Index

Remote sensing uses sophisticated technology to gain information on distant or hidden areas. Two categories of images include: a) those showing new discoveries at archaeological sites seen from space, and b) those revealing geology or other features of sites otherwise inaccessible.

Links to NASA/JPL. Their projects, from Space Shuttle flights to long-term interplanetary missions, are the primary source of satellite photography for views of both earth and the geology of other planets.
