A Remote Sensing Scientist studies objects or events using data collected without having to be in physical contact with the objects or events. A Remote sensing Scientist uses digital data collected from an extremely broad range of remote sensing systems, from both aerial and space-borne platforms, including aerial cameras, imaging radar systems and earth orbiting multi-spectral sensors. They apply remote sensing principles and methods to analyse data and solve problems in areas such as natural resource management, urban planning and geographical information systems (GIS). Remote Sensing Scientists are also involved in developing and enhancing analytical techniques and systems as well as developing new applications of existing systems.

Remote sensing is a rapidly changing field with new developments and constant research in high resolution systems with greater commercial application creating new opportunities in the field. They apply remote sensing principles and methods to analyse data and solve problems in areas such as natural resource management, urban planning and geographical information systems (GIS).

Remote Sensing Scientists may perform the following tasks:

  • apply knowledge of the principles of remote sensing, remote sensors, field checking and image processing and interpretation;
  • design and implement strategies for collection, analysis or display of geographic data;
  • collect supporting data to collaborate remote sensing data;
  • compile and format data to increase usability;
  • develop methodologies for the application and enhancement of remote sensing technology;
  • prepare and deliver reports of geospatial data.
