Data Center Description
NATIONAL REMOTE SENSING CENTRE
http://www.nrsc.co.uk/
One of the primary roles of the NRSC is to introduce new users to satellite
imagery and demonstrate how the data can be used for a variety of
applications. The objectives of the NRSC are to supply remote sensing data and
imagery; assist British Industry in its remote sensing activities; to provide
facilities for research into and development of data processing, analysis and
interpretive techniques; to act as a focal point for the development of remote
sensing techniques and their application; to provide education and training
facilities in remote sensing.
