Abstract
Since the launch of the first Earth Resources Technology Satellite-Landsat - by the United States in 1912 there has been a continuous flow of data from space about conditions at the earth's surface. The data from Landsat satellites can be processed into colour picture form to reveal surprising amounts of detail for large areas of the earth's surface. A typical image shows an area of some 34,000 sq km (10,000 sq nautical miles) with a resolution element of 56 x 79 m. This information has been used extensively in the developed world where large amounts of research have been done into the uses of the data and the creation of processing techniques.
