Remote Sensing
Remote sensing, and the generation of images based on remotely-acquired data, provides us with unprecedented views of our world, its oceans and landmasses, and the impact that we have had in our urban and agricultural regions.  As we continuously monitor weather patterns and global climate changes, remote sensing from a large number of orbiting satellites and monitoring stations provide us with valuable research data.  In addition, we only have to search as far as programs such as Google Maps to realize the potential that remote sensing will have on our daily lives.  Remote sensing and imaging will give us all the ability to view our world in many new and different ways.
