The advantages and limitations of remote sensing exploration from space platforms are outlined with special reference to the geologic objectives.
The enhancement techniques of the multispectral imagery and their effects are illustrated in order to improve the interpretation of geologic linears and the discrimination of soils and rocks.
Three cases of application are shown, dealing with different geologic regions.
The ability of remote sensing from space to be employed in both regional and local problems is shown.
The planning of exploration by airborne and ground geophysical methods can be substantially helped after the results of remote sensing, and large economic gains can be reached.
