GIS and education in Denmark




Made by ESA ( the European Space Agency in Europe). 27 towns and cities in and outside Europe. There are three ERS radar and satellite images for every town/city to make zooming possible.http://www.eurimage.com/gallery/webfiles/ls_intro.shtml

Interesting earth observation web site under development to study and monitor the dynamics of 21 European cities, the past and present land uses. The organizing keywords are CHANGE, UNDERSTAND, FORECAST. The observations are based on the IRS-C, Indian Remote Sensing Satellite, with a spatial resolution of 5.8m. The data sets and the site are developed by a JRC group.

The CORINE Land Cover inventory is part of the CORINE (COoRdination of INformation on the Environment) programme and is intended to provide consistent localised geographical information on the land cover of the 12 Member States of the European Community 1996-98.

IJsselmeer, Netherlands 1964, 1973, 1987. These images show changes in the IJsselmeer, a lake on the coast of the Netherlands.





The Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor onboard the LANDSAT collects data in seven (7) bands. We can see different features on Earth (or see the same features differently) by using various combinations of these bands.

The NASA Observatory is a public access site for Earth and space data. Pictures of the Earth, planets, stars, etc., as well as the stories behind those images. It is a very comprehensive web site giving links to both tutorials and remote sensing.
