Task Earth observation by remote sensing has come a long way and we can meet many of our information needs through digital image analysis . Read the paper on Applied Remote Sensing and Digital Image Analysis and identify reasons why RSDIA is/is not effective and factors that determine its' success. How is it likely to develop in the next decade?
