Remote sensing is characterized by the ability to repeatedly conduct observations over a wide range and from a distance. To harness this characteristic, remote sensing has mainly been used in the field of geosciences, such as climate change.
In recent years, fields of application for remote sensing have been expanding rapidly alongside technological advancements in the space sector. This technology can serve society in familiar ways including the maintenance and management of infrastructure, cartography, and smart agriculture.
It contributes to strengthening and enhancing the efficiency of maintenance and management systems for social infrastructure, such as roads and railways.Infrastructure
Satellite information is increasingly being used as a new form of map information across a wide range of fields, including infrastructure, agriculture, and oceans.Map
To enhance efficiency and productivity, various initiatives are underway to apply satellite data to smart agriculture.Agriculture
The scope of use for Forest monitoring through remote sensing in solving global issues such as climate change is constantly expanding.Forest
Information obtained through satellites, such as the temperature and surface level of vast oceans, is used for several purposes, such as improving the efficiency of fishery activities and addressing environmental issues.Ocean
Observation data obtained through meteorological satellites has a wide range of applications, from climate change on a global scale, to weather forecasts in daily life.Weather
There is no need to be physically present at the site even in the case of wide-area disasters such as floods, slope failures, and forest fires. This helps to efficiently capture information about the situation.Disaster
