Thanks for the feedback!
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.
When a satellite collects information from the surface of the earth the data is converted to an image Why this image is often not a true picture?
((Just copy-pasting from another person's answer on yahoo!Answers, I take no credit for this answer ) The instruments that are recording these images are looking for differ…ent data than would be shown in a photograph, such as temperature, high or low pressure, different gasses, etc. Many of theses kinds of data would not be obvious in a standard photograph or video.
It is stored in binary, that is in the form of ones and zeroes.
A small office in a different location from a company or government agency's main office. Reasons for opening a satellite operation may include reaching an underserved area, e…xpanding market share and lifestyle/quality of life factors for employees. Satellite operations can be used in all kinds of businesses, such as doctor's offices, Department of Motor Vehicles offices, political offices and corporate offices.
Computers store data in binary form. It reads all the input data in the form of binary. . Amit
because it is the only language a computer understands. The computer can only tell if a switch is on or off, and that is represented by a 1 or a 0
Computers store data in forms of bits, bytes, megabytes, and giga then terabytes. 8 bits make a byte and so on and so fourth.
Given that ALL computer images are formed from pixels, that would be a yes.
Satellites gather data from a satellite image by using electronicdevices to collect computer data
The basic hardware of computer consists of flipflops, which essentially recognize the voltage. Something below threshold is treated as 0, above it is treated as 1. Because all… the processing has to happen based on this signals only, we say computers understand only binary. Thus it stores what ever it can understand.
Satellite telescopes gather a huge amount of data. There are really two kinds of data. "Housekeeping data" is information about the satellite and its health and safety. It tel…ls you where the satellite thinks it is pointing, what its temperature is, which parts are working, and similar status information. This housekeeping data is used by the ground crew to make sure everything is working properly.In addition, the instruments on board also have their data, "Science data". This is the fun stuff -- the images, spectra, count rates, and other measurements of the celestial object you want to study. Most of the data that you transmit to the ground will be this science data. Scientists also use the housekeeping data to evaluate how well the instruments were functioning during the collection of their science data.Data is stored onboard the satellite and sent down to earth in batches, every orbit or every day or as often as possible. Sometimes, data can be sent in realtime -- as the instruments make their observations, they instantly beam the results back to Earth.
Yes, satellite images based on data obtained by land satsatellites.
Which adjustment function will enlarge an image by changing the amount of data stored in it to prevent distortion?
Any function that uses interpolation or extrapolation to calculate additional data points. You still won't be able to see through that dress though dude.
The computer uses electricity, not mechanical parts, for its data processing and storage. Electricity is plentiful, moves very fast through wires, and electrical parts fail …much less frequently than mechanical parts. The computer does have some mechanical parts, like its disk drive (which are often the sources for computer failures), but the internal data processing and storage is electronic, which is fast and reliable (as long as the computer is plugged in). Electricity can flow through switches: if the switch is closed, the electricity flows; if the switch is open, the electricity does not flow. To process real-world data in the computer, we need a way to represent the data in switches. Computers do this representation using a binary coding system .
