This chapter walks users through a technique for documenting change in before-and-after sets of satellite images. The technique can be used for any set of time-series images that are spatially registered to show the exact same area at the same scale. In the chapter, users examine three Landsat images of the Pearl River delta in southeastern China. In these images, users observe changes in land use, ... Full description.

In this activity guide, students use various mathematical skills in the context of examining an ISS EarthKAM image (ISS 004.ESC1.03221557) of farmland in Texas and New Mexico. They randomly select a sample region of the image, count the number of fields in that region, and estimate how many fields are in the entire image. They check how reasonable their estimate is, compare estimates, discuss differences ... Full description.
