You get images from a satellite using a frequency band. The best way to access satellite images is with Google maps. However, if you want your own, you will need to have at… least $500 USD, and for larger areas up to $14,000. Look at Digital Globe for these.
They convert infrared radiation into electrical signals which is then converted into visible light.
Computer tools that process data and satellite images with other pieces of geographic information are called?
Geography Information System, or GIS for short.
they have to use them for locating enemy vechiles or enemylocations.
They use satellite images to see what a area looks like from above earth they also collect information that we cannot see from the planets surface.
google maps. google maps
Satallite images tell you the temperature and the chance of rain ect...
They will be able to look for more information with satellite images and computers.
Yes that is the primary disadvantage of visible satellite imagery.
As the satellite orbits earth , it's sensors record the energiesreflected or emitted by the target area on the surface.
Satellites gather data from a satellite image by using electronicdevices to collect computer data
In New Zealand after a particularly bad cyclone, satellite photos were used to quantify the area of land that had been subject to slips. Therefore the amount of deforestation.…
true color is to see vegetation, waters, and mountains and infrared are based on heat patterns, and so the colors on them are not what we might expect.
Satellites are used to monitor the changes in the shape of the mountains. Specifically this is done rather often on the big island of Hawaii to make sure that none of the two …dormant volcanoes (Mauna Loa and Hualalai) are changing shape which would indicate magma movement into the upper plumbing of the volcanoes. Often times the same type of radar imagery is used to reconstruct the changes throughout a volcanic eruption, this radar imagery service is also used on the Yellowstone Super Caldera. Examples of how this has been used can be seen on both the Hawaii Volcanoes Observatory website and Yellowstone Volcano Observatory website. (See related links).

Because they want to see the difference between the two.
