Remote sensing at the end of the 20th century : A new challenge for computer science
In the year 1998 two new satellites will be launched for earth observation, namely EOS-AM-1 and ENVISAT. This represents a very important moment for the entire community interested in remote sensing not only because of the quality of the data which will be generated by these new satellites but above all because of the quantity of data and the need to manage the data in a practical and useful way. In this article, the main characteristics of the current information systems used to analyse remote sensing data are discussed and some new strategies are proposed in order that in the future it will be possible to manage intelligently the data coming from the new generation of earth observation systems.
