Both Google Earth and Bing map use data from different sources (satellite images and ortho-photos). The horizontal accuracy depends on the source of the datasets and the level of orthorectification. It is usually better near cities than "in the middle of nowhere", but it primarily depends on the data sources.

The aerial imaging community utilizes the National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS) to define and measure the quality of images and performance of imaging systems. Through a process referred to as "rating" an image, the NIIRS is used by imagery analysts to assign a number which indicates the interpretability of a given image.

For. Burton, in Volcanic Ash, Abstract. While satellite imagery can capture synoptic scale volcanic ash emissions from major eruptions, there are much more frequent, smaller, ash-rich eruptions, which can only be observed locally. Such emissions are an additional source of information revealing the magmatic dynamics driving volcanic activity, and are therefore valuable if they can be.

Depending on the area and scale desired, imagery costs can range from free image data sets available on the Internet to over $, for custom products. To assess the value of satellite imagery in resource evaluation on a national scale book Limitations.

In many cases, the primary limitation of this method is the high cost of obtaining large-scale satellite or aerial imagery (Williams et al., ). in the ALOS/PRISM imagery. The RMSE for the satellite imagery represented in Google Maps and Bing Maps was m and m respectively, and for OpenStreetMap it was m.

Two small spatial scale data sets, ArcGIS ver. World Roads dataset and Vector Map level 0 (evaluated for 9 cities) have RMSEs of m and m respectively. Aerial remote sensing data are useful to natural hazard management for focusing on priority areas, verifying small-scale data interpretations, and providing information about features that are too small for detection by satellite imagery, but extensive aerial surveys commonly exceed the budget constraints of a planning study and may also.

The Water Resources Center is installing instruments at diverse sites across the state to record data by satellite telemetry. The National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS) is a subjective scale used for rating the quality of imagery acquired from various types of imaging systems.

The NIIRS defines different levels of image quality/interpretability based on the types of tasks an analyst can perform with. report instruments like the VVIQ simply do not assess aspects of spatial imagery but instead assess aspects of object imagery (Heuer et al., ; Kozhevnikov et al., ; Reisberg et al., ).

The first images from space were taken on sub-orbital U.S-launched V-2 flight on Octo took one image every seconds. With an apogee of 65 miles ( km), these photos were from five times higher than the previous record, the miles (22 km) by the Explorer II balloon mission in The first satellite (orbital) photographs of Earth were made on Aug The National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS) is used by imagery analysts to define the quality of aerial imagery from different imaging systems.

The scale uses a number to indicate the level of detail which may be seen in an image, and therefore how much information may be expected from it. Satellite remote sensing is a powerful tool to map flooded areas.

In recent years, the availability of free satellite data significantly increased in terms of type and frequency, allowing the production of flood maps at low cost around the world. National Geographic Society's Measurement, Evaluation and Research (MER) team ensures that the Society's investments further programmatic and grant-making priorities by monitoring, measuring, and evaluating activities to assess effectiveness and identify opportunities for learning and improvement.
