NSA February Meeting

  • Schaumburg Township District Library 130 S. Roselle Road Schaumburg, Illinois USA (map)

Jim Plaxco of the Chicago Society for Space Studies joins us for a program called "Planet Earth as Art:  The View from Space".  He opens with an overview of remote sensing and the image processing techniques used to process Landsat scenes.   This is followed by a variety of images of landforms and natural scenes that demonstrate that Earth, as seen from orbit, can be considered a work of art.
