Acquiring information about a natural feature or phenomenon, such as the Earth's surface, without actually being in contact with it. USGS remote sensing is usually carried out with airborne or spaceborne sensors or cameras.
This category is also used for airborne imaging, photogrammetry, satellite imaging, and space-borne sensing.
