Satellite imagery includes photographs of the earth taken
through an artificial satellite revolving around the earth. The
process of correcting these satellite images for haze, cloud and
sensor induced defects within satellite image and overlaying
the 2D satellite image on 3D surface of the earth is called
satellite image processing.
Processed satellite images have different
scientific and need based applications in the field
of agriculture, geology, forestry, biodiversity
conservation, regional planning, education,
intelligence and warfare.
HISTORYThe first images from space were
taken on sub-orbital flights. The U.S-launched V-
2 flight on October 24, 1946 took one image
every 1.5 seconds.
The first satellite (orbital) photographs of Earth
were made on August 14, 1959 by the
U.S. Explorer 6. The first satellite photographs of
the Moon might have been made on October 6,
1959 by the Soviet satellite Luna 3, on a mission

These type of applications collects, Produce and
analyze a huge amount of data.
By Deploying the sensor and satellites for monitoring
the technology our planet will become more
Due to the development of geological information

The GIS applications can process all types of
geographically referenced data.
This information is useful for for civil security purpose
processing Cloud computing is an advancement for these kind of application for
generating meaningful result.
The satellite image sensing generates a lot of raw images
that needs to be processed further.
This requires the high computation in both Input and Output manner.
The large size images can be transferred from the local ground station
to cloud computing facilities for further solution and corrections.
The cloud computing will provide an accurate infrastructure for these
kind of services.
