Engineers and scientists working with high-altitude and space-oriented hardware and software have surpassed the abilities of environmental scientists and ecologists to utilize remote sensing information, while at the same time not really understanding fundamental problems on the ground. Developments in technology of remote sensing are now at a stage where these methods can be applied to large-scale environmental issues, but the ability to attribute the images to specific features on the Earth's surface and, even more importantly, to general conditions at other locations, had lagged behind.
