Remote sensing techniques are evaluated for their use in land cover and land use mapping. Catchment monitoring and management requires detailed and up to date information about the surface runoff, cover and use. Remote sensing as a data gathering technique can rapidly deliver very detailed studies of the ground surface. Choice of the instrument, platform and analysis technique varies however depending on the size of the catchment, number and complexity of parameters required, budget and availability of the trained staff to undertake data analysis.
