Abstract

A “state of the art” overview is given of the possibilities of acquiring and using remotely sensed data together with information from other sources. Remote sensing is a very helpful tool for collecting useful information to plan and manage more successfully the earth’s natural and cultural resources. But remote sensing should always be combined with other data collection methods, because it cannot alone satisfy all information requirements (Monget and Verger, 1977).
