Overview Edit

A remote sensing sensor is

generally classified as panchromatic (PAN) or multispectral (MS). The former produce data in black and white, while the latter produce data in color. MS sensors record images that provide the means to identify and study characteristics of different surface features. These sensors usually include portions of the spectrum in both the visible and infrared regimes. Recently, hyperspectral sensors have been developed that divide up the spectrum into many more, smaller bands than MS sensors for even more detailed characterization of surface features.[1]
