Analysis of Approaches to the Systematization of Thematic Tasks Using Remote Sensing Data

Systematization of thematic tasks that are solved using remote sensing data (RSD) is one of the ways to improve the effectiveness of the practical application of the results of space activities. Different approaches to the selection of priorities and thematic areas for the use of RSD are shown based on the example of separate world and Russian space monitoring programs. The results of the analysis of the considered approaches make it possible to identify a number of principles for constructing an integrated information platform whose purpose is to formulate a strategy and determine the prospects for the development of domestic remote monitoring programs in the first approximation. Current tendencies in remote sensing show that the content of such a platform goes beyond the sectoral, instrumental, regional, and other classifications. The development of a comprehensive classifier of thematic tasks can be the first step for implementing such a platform.
