HOW CAN REMOTE SENSING ASSIST RESEARCHERS?

Remote sensing can assist researchers in the following ways:

  • Gives an overview of the entire study area;
  • Allows geologists to check and verify changes over time;
  • Researchers do not have to be at the site to obtain data;
  • Weather conditions have limited influence on the obtaining of data;
  • Up to date data is easily and readily available;
  • Geologists will have access to data that could not be easily reached (obtained) by human beings;
  • Data can be collected quickly;
  • Safer to collect data from inaccessible places;
  • Continuous collection of data;
  • Assists with more accurate geological mapping;
  • Improves spectral resolution of geological mapping;
  • Combining different datasets of geological layers;
  • Studying changes in geological environments;
  • Collection of data is reliable.
