Remote Sensing Technicians
- Collect geospatial data, using technologies such as aerial photography, light and radio wave detection systems, digital satellites, or thermal energy systems.
- Manipulate raw data to enhance interpretation, either on the ground or during remote sensing flights.
- Adjust remotely sensed images for optimum presentation by using software to select image displays, define image set categories, or choose processing routines.
- Calibrate data collection equipment.
- Consult with remote sensing scientists, surveyors, cartographers, or engineers to determine project needs.
- Correct raw data for errors due to factors such as skew or atmospheric variation.
- Develop or maintain geospatial information databases.
- Evaluate remote sensing project requirements to determine the types of equipment or computer software necessary to meet project requirements, such as specific image types or output resolutions.
- Integrate remotely sensed data with other geospatial data.
