Remote sensing is a technology that facilitates the collection of data about the Earth's surface from a distance, typically through satellites, aircraft, or drones. This non-invasive method enables the acquisition of essential information, including topography, land cover, vegetation health, and environmental changes, without direct physical contact with the target area. By employing various sensors, such as LiDAR and multispectral cameras, remote sensing plays a pivotal role in environmental monitoring, disaster response, agriculture, and natural resource management. The data gathered through remote sensing allows scientists, researchers, and decision-makers to assess landscapes at a large scale, understand trends over time, and address critical global challenges related to climate change and sustainable development.
