Image processing - using satellite images
This is a free resource courtesy of Earth Science Australia
Satellite images can be very useful in providing valuable
information but the human eye is not sensitive enough
to interpret the subtle changes in brightness and colour.
To help we can use image processing to overcome this difficulty and to expose the hidden treasures of information found in satellite images. Image processing works because, unlike photographs, numbers represents the colours in satellite and digital images.
