Types of Data: distances, areas, shape, proximity- Mercator – MATH – 1029

Types of Data: distances, areas, shape, proximity- Mercator Projection map: distorts relative areas and gives us a better look at the shape of things - All projections have some degree of distortion- Families of Projections( Cylindrical projections: standard/contact line display accurate locations, Mercator projection, Planar projection: points closer to the north pole are going to display accurate locations/ once at equator locations become distorted, Oval projection, Conic projections (**EVERY FAMILY of PROJECTION displays some view of distortion regarding locations) Remote Sensing- collecting information and gathering data from a distance without physical contact- light, sound, and your eyes determine location- Energy: Electromagnetic Radiation Spectrum(range of different energy types displaying different wavelengths of energy)- Wavelength- distance of energy creating different visible light and colors- We as humans radiate energy, all matter radiates energy- Hot wavelengths=shorter wavelengths- Cooler wavelengths=longer wavelengths (desk)- Color indicates stress on plants used in Agriculture- All objects emit energy - Passive sensors require external energy source: giving off electromagnetic energy source- Active sensors require their own use of energy source (radar- radio protection and range)...
