Specialized software is used for this display and the user chooses which bands are displayed in the software’s view screen. Specific images will be discussed in later sections of this chapter. Software used to display remotely sensed images is also used for analyzing the images for specific applications. Each pixel of an individual band of an image has a set of brightness values, representing a feature’s spectral signature within that pixel. These values can be enhanced in various ways, which forms the basis of remote sensing analyses.
