  Software + hardware
  
   Here's a complete cop-out: software is rather well covered in related
   documents.
   
    Where can I find Descriptions/Reviews of Remote Sensing Software?
    
   There is an excellect collection of reviews, now maintained by Vinton
   Valentine at
   http://triton.cms.udel.edu:80/~oliver/gis_gip/gis_gip_list.html. In
   spite of the "gislist" name, this deals extensively with Remote
   Sensing and Image Processing software. Furthermore, comments and
   reviews are generally independent of the manufacturers/distributors.
   
    Is there a list of Software Vendors?
    
    Where can I find information on Software Packages?
    
   These questions are covered in the comp.infosystems.gis FAQ and the
   "Using the Web for Geoscience Resources" FAQ, among others.
   
    What software is available in the Public Domain?
    
   See the Public Domain Cartographic Software FAQ.
   
   Pointers to the FAQs are here.
   
   Free packages for image processing include:
     * Khoros, from ftp://ftp.khoros.unm.edu/ /
       http://www.khoros.unm.edu/.
       There is also a commercial khoros from khoral.com (frontpage
       www.khoral.com)
     * Grass, from ftp://moon.cecer.army.mil/
     * MultiSpec from http://dynamo.ecn.purdue.edu/~biehl/MultiSpec/
       
   A few more listed FYI with no comment (in all but one case, simply
   because I know nothing):
     * http://dcz.gso.uri.edu/XBrowse/browse/browse.html XBrowse- A
       client-server browse application for satellite AVHRR imagery.
     * Land Analysis System, from USGS/EDC (Landsat TM & NOAA AVHRR)
     * http://www.atmos.washington.edu/gcg/SV.man/SVmanual.html Satview
       (University of Washington).
       
    How can I recieve imagery on my PC?
    
   This question is dealt with in detail in the WXSAT FAQ and other
   documents at ftp://kestrel.umd.edu/pub/wxsat/docs/.
   
   There is a nice "Build your own HRPT groundstation" webpage at
   http://www.msoft.it/noaa95/.
