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 * Chopped long and badly outdated contact list.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 (Kappa/Entropy). * Various miscellaneous updates from the backlog, including Web references. * The Interactive FAQ software is now operational again at http://pobox.com/%7Esatfaq/ 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. ============================================ The HTML version of this FAQ may be read at Web addresses, including: http://www.geog.nott.ac.uk/remote/satfaq.html http://atlas.esrin.esa.it:8000/lib/satfaq.html and the "faqlib": http://www.faqlib.com/ http://www.ba-karlsruhe.de/faqlib/ http://www.vol.it/mirror/faqlib/ It can also be retrieved by email from the SATFAQ autoresponder.
