This section introduces useful sensors for remote sensing from satellites and aircrafts using hyperspectral, hyperspatial, active, and 3-D observations. We also introduce recent advances in agricultural remote sensing including applications in sustainable agriculture such as precision farming, agroforestry, and land conservation.
