Papers on remote sensing of Vegetation, presented at the First and Second Conferences on the Economics of Remote Sensing Information Systems, are summarized. The subjects of the various papers include: the econometric measurement of benefits of information systems in the wheat market, the estimate of benefits from Landsat programs; cost comparison between aircraft and satellite data sources; cost-benefit comparisons of panchromatic color, color-infrared, multi-spectral photography, and Landsat imagery for soils and land-use; comparison of total coverage and strip sampling as alternative data collection schemes; and, in general, cost-benefit analysis of remote sensing programs.
