During the last decade we have seen a steep evolution in the capabilities and availability of Remote Sensing Sensors, platforms and the computer technology (Hardware and Software) necessary to handle ever increasing mountains of data. The ever accelerating rate of progress and changes is driven by the advances in enabling technologies like Computer Science, Robotics, Sensor technologies, Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), on one hand, and the requirements of demanding applications and the democratisation of technology and data, on the other hand. For example demands by Military and Security applications have let to the development of sophisticated Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in various shapes and sizes are capable of deploying the most advanced Remote Sensing Sensors. The appearance of publicly available mapping systems like Google maps and Bing maps has sparked an awareness and interest in Geospatial data that has never been seen before.
