Remote Sensing: How to make it valuable

The real value of any data set comes from the interpretation of the data and understanding of what is happening on the ground.  Remote sensed data, regardless of platform, still needs to be ground truthed.  Just because you have an image doesn’t mean that it will be valuable.  The understanding of this is key to managing expectations from you and those of your grower.
