FIGURE 3.1 Characteristics of selected moderate-and fine-resolution optical remote sensing systems, 1999-2015. The spatial resolution of each remote sensing system is portrayed with the following circles: panchromatic (pan) band in orange; VNIR and/or SWIR bands in green; thermal infrared bands in red; and hyperspectral bands in yellow. There are more fine-resolution systems available than moderate-resolution (although several systems are planned for 2014-2015). SOURCE: John Jensen, University of South Carolina.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
