Remote Sensing Interactives

Interactive tools help illustrate basic remote sensing concepts. 

Feature Space Interactive

Multispectral Feature Space Interactive
A Java interactive designed to help teach the basic concepts of what feature space is and how it is used in image classification.
Interactive developed by Roberto Garcia Yunta, Peter Ersts, and Ned Horning
Band Combination Icon

Band Combinations
The Band Combination interactive tool allows you to change MODIS, ASTER, and LANDSAT images by controlling which bands make up the image.

Spectral Curves Icon

Spectral curves and sensor band
This interactive tool illustrates how different sensors measure the intensity of different wavelengths of light.
Content developed by Ned Horning.
Landcover Icon

Land cover map/image comparison
Interactively compare the similarities and differences between a Landsat satellite image and a landcover map derived from that image.
Content developed by Ned Horning.
What Sensor Sees Icon

What a sensor sees
This interactive tool displays how the value of an image pixel is determined by the sensor.
Content developed by Ned Horning.
Image Foot Print Icon

Image footprint comparison
This interactive tool highlights the amount of area or "footprint" that several different satellite images acquire.
