ASL Remote Sensing

Data Acquisition

We use a variety of sensors, either airborne or satellite or a combination of both.  Which is best depends upon the nature of the project.  Multiple sensors may be needed to complete a project in order to best respond to your needs. We can also make recommendations about in situ ground or water sampling programs in support of a remote sensing project. 

Here are just a sample of your sensor options: 

Low resolution, wide coverage multispectral
