(a) Photographic.

(b) Non-photographic.

1. Vertical.

2. Horizontal.

3. Oblique.

4. Convergent.

5. Trimetrogen.

Q.6. What is active remote sensing?

Ans. Active remote sensing is the science of recording the information energy activated by man like flash guns and microwave radar.


Q.1. What are satellite imageries?

Ans. Satellite imageries are the practical value to geographers because they provide synoptic coverage of large areas and permit a more accurate regional mapping of natural resources. It is obtained through the techniques of remote sensing.

Q.2. Name the eight elements mostly used for image interpretation.

1. Size.

2. shape.

3. shadow.

4. tone.
