A CATALOG SYSTEM FOR REMOTE-SENSING DATA

The Interdisciplinary Remote Sensing Group at the University of Wisconsin has been laboring long to make remote sensing a workable tool for environmental monitoring especially as related to water quality. For remote sensing to be a useful tool three things are necessary. Firstly, the correct hardware must be available and properly used to obtain the imagery and support data; secondly, this imagery and data must be systematically indexed, filed, and retrieved to be of use; and thirdly, all this remote-sensing imagery and data must be properly analyzed before it is of real use. This paper focuses on the second factor and describes a practical, workable system for cataloging, indexing, filing, and retrieving remote-sensing data. The system is specialized enough to cover scientific remote-sensing needs, but is practical and simple enough to be operated and used by conventional library techniques without undue modification.
