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.
