Land Management Webinar-Assignment 1
List two advantages of using remote sensing data over in situ ground plots.
Name two different kinds of satellite orbits.
What type of orbit does Landsat 8 have?
What is the relationship between spatial resolution and spatial extent in satellite imagery?
The higher the spatial resolution the greater the spatial extent
The lower the spatial resolution the greater the spatial extent
Which of the following is not a passive sensor?
MODIS is flying on which satellites?
Terra and Aqua
Which satellite data require more processing from the end-user?
How many spectral bands does Landsat 8 have?
Healthy vegetation reflects energy in what parts of the electromagnetic spectrum?
Blue and Green
