Some of the key applications are:

  • In natural resource management, remote sensing and GIS is mainly used in the mapping process. These technologies can be used to develop a variety of maps. Examples include:
• Vegetation / crop patterns / soil maps
• Forestry - Types of forests present within the area of the study, human encroachment into forest land and protected areas
• Water bodies such as rivers, lakes, dams and reservoirs can be mapped and flood zones can be identified
• Assisting emergency response teams by helping prevent or manage any potential loss of containment of dangerous substances from industrial plants, disaster management, flood mapping and more
• Site suitability analysis, mapping to identify potential mineral zones, structural feature detection, geological database creation for mineral exploration, contouring, geo-referencing of topographical and physio-graphical mapping
