What are Satellite/Sensor Characteristics

Satellite/Sensor Properties for Image Processing This article will bring information and characteristics of satellite/sensor.   It is very important to know the characteristics of satellite image , this help user to select and acquire satellite image as per need of research and project.  Image can be select based on mapping purpose and for this basic properties are very important for selection of satellite image, which are below- Spectral Resolution Spatial Resolution Temporal Resolution These properties play significant role for better image classification as per requirement of project. These properties will help to select appropriate image as per need of project for example in first case, spatial resolution may be important if detail information required but in other case if repeatedly satellite images required then temporal resolution become important. Instead of these resolution swath of satellite image is also important as it describe the coverage of satellite imag
