     * Technical
         1. Image Basics
               o What is a digital image?
               o What is spatial resolution?
               o What is temporal resolution?
               o What is spectral resolution?
         2. Image Data (previously called "Image Formats")
         3. What are the different levels of imagery I can buy/download?
         4. Is there a non-proprietary image format for geographic/RS
            data? (GEOTIFF)
         5. Do I need geocoded imagery?
         6. Instruments
               o Imaging Instruments
               o How do Remote Sensing Instruments Work?
               o Tracking Instruments
               o List of Imaging Spectrometers
               o What is a Sounding Instrument?
         7. Basic Processing (TBD)
         8. Orbits: (TBD)
            _The original idea was a mini-tutorial intro; looks like I
            never got round to it :-(_
               o Where can I learn about satellite orbits?
               o What are the orbits of EO satellites?
               o what is the advantage of a polar orbit? What can you see
                 from a geostationary orbit (Meteosat)? Other orbits?
               o Is there a list the various satellite's orbits?
               o How do I convert Landsat Path/Row to Lat/Long?
         9. Data
               o How is satellite data received on the ground?
        10. Geo-referencing (someone?)
        11. I am using my images for some classification problem.
               o I need to classify a mosaic of several images. How best
                 to do it?
               o How can I assess my results?
               o Is there a program to compute Kappa
                 coefficients/assessment measures?
               o How good can I expect my results to be in practice?
