Yeah, at nationals 2 years ago, the even was around 95% satellites. My partner had covered the satellites and I had covered the ecology, so I answered the few questions pertaining to ecology and did the tie breaker graph while my partner did the rest of the test. He ended up guessing on a lot because some information wasn't on our sheets. The event was really poorly written; we had barely prepared and had won 3rd. While I'm glad I medalled, I honestly don't think we deserved it.In my experience with Remote Sensing, the test really depends on the event supervisor. One might focus on satellites, another on interpreting images, and another might do more on the ecological aspect. I've seen tests, whether in competition or just practice ones, that focus on all three. I don't think they should focus on ecology that much, since there IS another event called Ecology. There may be a few questions but it's mostly more of an overview than something that has to be focused on. Usually it's mostly on satellites, satellite imagery, and interpreting images. Basically all that Celeste mentioned.
Then again, if a supervisor really likes ecology, then that may be the main part of their test. So I can say what's the norm, but not what will happen every time. So you have to be competent in all parts of it.
