Remote Sensing Technicians
- Participate in the planning or development of mapping projects.
- Verify integrity and accuracy of data contained in remote sensing image analysis systems.
- Prepare documentation or presentations, including charts, photos, or graphs.
- Merge scanned images or build photo mosaics of large areas, using image processing software.
- Integrate remotely sensed data with other geospatial data.
- Consult with remote sensing scientists, surveyors, cartographers, or engineers to determine project needs.
- Adjust remotely sensed images for optimum presentation by using software to select image displays, define image set categories, or choose processing routines.
- Manipulate raw data to enhance interpretation, either on the ground or during remote sensing flights.
- Collect geospatial data, using technologies such as aerial photography, light and radio wave detection systems, digital satellites, or thermal energy systems.
