Gaps and Interfaces (cont’d)

The gap between raw remote sensing data collected and the information needed by applications users. Users need information, and the process of transforming data into information is a critical step in the development of successful remote sensing applications.” (p. 3)

Transforming Remote Sensing Data into Information and Applications (2001) (cont’d)


The gap in communication and understanding between those with technical experience and training and the potential new end users of the technology. Producers and technical processors of remote sensing data must be able to understand the needs, cultural context, and organizational environments of end users. Education and training can also help to ensure that new end users have a better understanding of the potential utility of the technology.” (p. 3)
