Abstract

Closing the existing communications gap is proposed as a necessary prerequisite for the future integration of remote sensing (RS) and information systems (GIS). It is argued establishing a communication interface between the two communities in order to clarify the current aims, capabilities, and operational status of these two technologies, both separately and jointly, would go a long way toward solving many of the difficulties presently experienced. A framework designed to help address the communication problem is outlined.
