That site can be helpful for starting to interpret satellite images. However, from my experience, satellite images make up around 20-30% of the tests. You should later try the NASA website and research the major satellites and satellite programs.
Wow only 20-30%? I thought almost the entire test was looking at images. That really helps with the direction of my studying, thanks!
From my experience, there's about 3-4 pictures with around 5-6 questions. But, usually, my partner and I split up, so that one does imagery and the other does the other problems (like terms, physics problems), because we consider it to be a vital section. I would say while it may not seem like a big part of RS, definitely work on it. If I recall correctly, the Nationals test last year had a lot of imagery.
I've done remote sensing at 3 tournaments and I've seen huge variances at all three.
Athens last year was about 30% image analysis and the rest split between questions on the environment and physics problems.
My regional last year had zero image analysis and it was about 80% questions on the environment.
I didn't do it at states last year and I don't remember what my teammate said about that.
And then two days ago at Athens, the test was 90% image analysis and the only other questions were to define acronyms.
has anyone else seen that much variation between tests?
