Abstract : The project had as its purpose the evaluation of remote sensor returns for use as data sources for geographic research. Test site 46, which is a 50 mile long, 10 mile wide strip oriented generally northwest-southeast from the Tennessee-North Carolina state line near Hot Springs, over Asheville, to the vicinity of Hendersonville near the North Carolina-South Carolina state line, was established as a region for periodic sampling by remote sensors and subsequently evaluating the utility of using such returns as data sources or contributory information sources for solution of certain geographic problems.
