Nowadays, we are witnessing many environmental problems, including climate change, natural disasters and energy resource shortages. The management of the natural environment is a very important issue for sustainable development work. Satellite remote sensing is a powerful tool for the monitoring of natural resources. The geographic information system is an efficient tool for the analysis of the spatial information datasets created by remote sensing. This laboratory is working to develop a system (based on satellite remote sensing and geographic information systems) for national land management of natural resources use.
