Remote Sensing-an emerging latest technology

REMOTE SENSING is the getting of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. In modern usage, the remote sensing generally refers to the use of aerial sensor technologies to detect and classify objects on Earth’s surface and in the atmosphere (including oceans) by means of electromagnetic radiation emitted from aircraft or satellites (propagated signals). Remote sensing makes it possible to collect data on dangerous or inaccessible areas.
