Remote sensing of environment a necessity for development in Latin America Documento de la Conferencia uri icon


  • The problem of rapid development of space technology and its implications in the Latin American nations is analyzed. The authors emphasize the efforts (i.e., the Inter American Space Conference) that are taking place in order to gain momentum to absorb, in a constructive way, these new technologies. The authors look at both the scientific and the political aspects of the problem, pointing out an example of two kinds of cooperation in which remote sensing can be used to help the development of space technology.
