Abstract: Digital imagery (or digital data) acquired by commercial remote sensing satellites, combined with inexpensive PC-based image processing software provides an efficient and cost-effective capability/technique for monitoring changes to wetland systems. This paper describes some of the potential of this imagery as well as some of the limitations and difficulties inherent in the use of remotely sensed data. Differences between the types of imagery available are described as well as the types of techniques which may be employed to analyze/manipulate the imagery. An example application of the use of this imagery for routine change detection is described.
