  2. 2. [REMOTE SENSING SATELLITES CATALOGUE] February 2, 2012 Department of the Space Sciences [5th Semester, Session 2009-13] Page2 ABSTRACT: This paper describes a comprehensive research work on available datasets on Remote Sensing Satellites since the time of its beginning. Some of the important criteria were kept in mind while doing this assignment such as satellite names, altitudes, swath widths, resolutions, owner of the satellites, and agency or launch vehicles of the satellites etc. First portion describes the introduction to the satellites, second deals with the remote sensing satellites, third encounters with the description of the datasets while on fourth portion whole of the satellite catalogue be there and last one, fifth portion, is on the references side. The assignment was given by “Sir. Asim Dawood” under the Department of Space Sciences, University of the Punjab. This paper work was done by 05th semester, BS.(Hons.), session 2009-13 by the team effort of the following students: 1. Mr. Asif Butt (SS09-05) 2. Miss. Atiqa Ijaz Khan (SS09-03) 3. Miss. Rabbia Mehmod (SS09-14) 4. Miss. Rabia Zahoor (SS09-28) 5. Miss. Rafia Naheed (SS09-09) 6. Mr. Usama Maqsood (SS09-25)

[REMOTE SENSING SATELLITES CATALOGUE] February 2, 2012 Department of the Space Sciences [5th Semester, Session 2009-13] Page3 INTRODUCTION TO SATELLITES Definition of Satellites: “A satellite is something that goes around and around the earth or another planet”. Some satellites are natural, like the moon, which is a natural satellite of the earth. Other satellites are made by scientists and technologists to go around the earth. Some satellites send and receive television signals. The signal is sent from a station on the earth's surface. The satellite receives the signal and rebroadcasts it to other places on the earth. With the right number of satellites in space, one television program can be seen all over the world. Some satellites send and receive telephone, fax, and computer communications. Satellites make it possible to communicate by telephone, fax, Internet, or computer with anyone in the world. Other satellites observe the world's weather, feeding weather information into giant computer programs that help scientists know what the weather will be. The weather reporters on your TV news program get their information from those scientists. Some satellites take very accurate pictures of the earth's surface, sending back images that tell scientists about changes that are going on around the world and about crops, water, and other resources.

Without this no developed country can make a remarkable progress even now its also the need of under developed countries. Mostly the Remote Sensing satellites operate under low Earth to medium Earth altitude range, having different combinations of bands and resolutions. Also their swath width varies from the range of kilometers to meters as the technology revives. Therefore, it is the basic aspect of the of the modern century that not only help the military assessment but also going to be in best for the civilian purposes now a days and hopefully in the near future.

[REMOTE SENSING SATELLITES CATALOGUE] February 2, 2012 Department of the Space Sciences [5th Semester, Session 2009-13] Page32 Introduction to the Datasets Definition of the Dataset: “The term data set refers to a file that contains one or more records”. Datasets consist of all of the information gathered during a survey which needs to be analyzed. Any named group of records is called a data set. Data sets can be cataloged, which permits the data set to be referred to by name without specifying where it is stored. A record is a fixed number of bytes containing data. The term field refers to a specific portion of a record used for a particular category of data. The records in a data set can be organized in various ways, depending on how we plan to access the information.

Secondary key can also be utilized to facilitate the procedure. 3. One of the major benefits of using the Access is that the new entry is much more easy to tackle. 4.
