I've done remote sensing at 3 tournaments and I've seen huge variances at all three.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.Wow only 20-30%? I thought almost the entire test was looking at images. That really helps with the direction of my studying, thanks!
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.
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?
