• Remote sensing technology for rangeland management applications

      Tueller, Paul T. (Society for Range Management, 1989-11-01)
      The future of rangeland resources development and management is dependent upon increased scientific capability. Remote sensing technology can contribute information for a variety of rangeland resource management applications. In future we can expect to see an increased number of professional range managers with expertise in remote sensing. This training will include, in addition to principles of aerial photo interpretation, digital image analysis technology, increased use of geographic information systems, airborne video remote sensing, and the use of newly developing high resolution systems. The data will be obtained from both aircraft and spacecraft. Applications will include inventory, evaluation, and monitoring of rangeland resources and the incorporation of remote sensing data to support and improve the decision processes on the use, development, and management of rangeland resource areas.
