I also did Remote Sensing at Nationals last year; the test is very well written, it entirely follows the rules. It was run simply as a sit down test, although it could be broken up into stations. It has some basics, but mostly application.haverstall wrote:To reiterate what Chalker said, yes, the test follows the rules.

The test was great, I thought (Disclaimer: I got 6th last year.). It was mostly imagery, with one or two sections of basic MC questions, but it covered everything about RS, and I appreciate a test like that. What threw me were the questions on sensors that I really did not study, but thankfully had some information on my note sheet. You should see if your coach has a CD containing the Nats test from last year if you really want to examine it yourself. It's also available on the Soinc Store here.
No. Could you post what type of digital image processing questions you have come across?Wadhk wrote:Has anyone see any digital image processing questions on the tests?
Yes; the imagery questions are pretty much identification as you so defined, although there are questions that get more complicated.kalithepianist wrote:I'll probably get that CD - thanks for telling me about it! :]
Was the imagery questions essentially identification? i.e. what does X part of this picture represent, what causes it, etc.?
My state's exam didn't follow the rules at all, so that's why I asked. xD
Now a question of my own:
Just out of curiosity, what particular satellites and sensors have come up on the tests that you guys have taken so far?
