This view from Space of a forested area in the mountains of British Columbia is produced by merging color from a multispectral satellite image with the higher spatial detail from a Panchromatic sensor.
Imagery from Space can be combined with elevation data to produce perspective views that provide new insights into natural resource conditions.
