Remote sensing is the gathering and recording of information without actual physical contact of the sensing equipment with the object or area being investigated, as in satellite or aerial photography. Remote sensing is used to collect information about the earth's geological features, vegetation, atmosphere, bodies of water, ice surfaces, and land use. Such observations have applications in archaeology, cartography, geology, soil science, oceanography, hydrology, meteorology, climatology, agriculture, engineering, environmental studies, and matters of military concern.

This guide supersedes TB 75-2 in providing a review of the literature on remote sensing in the collections of the Library of Congress. Not intended as a comprehensive bibliography, it is designed—as the name of the series implies—to put the reader "on target."
