Remote sensing has long been an effective tool to study and manage environmental assets. Working for Water Management Districts, the Army Corps of Engineers and numerous environmental agencies, we have provided orthophotography and elevation data for the study and management of wetlands, sea grass beds and coastal environments.

What is environmental management

Remote sensing is the science of obtaining information about the Earth using high-flying aircraft and satellites. The data is collected by sensors attached to the aircraft that detect the energy that is reflected from Earth.

How it works

Remote sensors fall into two classifications; passive and active. In response to external stimuli, passive sensors record the natural energy emitted from the Earth’s surface. Reflected sunlight is the most common source of detected radiation. Active sensors differ in that they use internal stimuli to collect data. A common example is the use of a laser-beam remote sensing system, where data is collected by projecting a laser to the Earth’s surface and measuring the time it takes for it to be reflected back to the sensor.

Remote sensing has a wide range of applications for environmental planning and management. Coastal applications, ocean applications, hazard assessments and natural resource management are just a few of the broad areas under which fall an array of analyses such as; monitoring shoreline changes, measuring ocean temperatures, tracking the impacts of natural disasters and charting wildlife habitats. These types of analyses all aid in the effective planning and management of the land and water, and its resources.
