UNESCO and Remote Sensing

Read more about UNESCO's remote sensing activities.

"Remote sensing is the science of deriving information about the land and water areas from images (e.g. satellite images) acquired at a distance". In the area of remote sensing, or satellite images, UNESCO works mainly as a 'bridge' between the needs and requirements of developing Member States and the space experts that can provide the adequate solution to these problems.
