Satellite Imagery FAQ

Satellite Imagery for Earth Observation

   Last Modified: December 13th 1996:
   _The updates have been rather sporadic since September - sorry._
     * Removed apparently nonfunctional "Geoscience Journals" server;
       added some new references for journal information.
     * Chopped long and badly outdated contact list. Left in the
       reference to the original it was copied from.
     * Updated references for downloadable assessment software
     * Various miscellaneous updates from the backlog, including Web
     * The Interactive FAQ software is now operational again at I'm looking to use it to
       'democratise' this document (i.e. encourage direct contributions
       which will automatically ingested), but my other FAQ - which is
       much shorter and simpler than this one - is leading the way in
       terms of contents.

NOTE: a server which was dead for several days appears to have killed
November's posting - sorry.   Also I've made some changes to the
posting scripts: apologies in advance if it screws up.
