Remote sensing datasets and technologies can be used in many ways to enhance geological knowledge of areas all around the world. In recent years, remote sensing datasets have seen a large increase in spatial resolution and quality, which make it possible to use them for many purposes that were unheard of before. This is particularly useful for detailed mapping of structure, stratigraphy and alteration, at scales at which no published geological maps exist, showing the subtle geological features that are so important during exploration. Through a number of information articles, we intend to increase the knowledge about possible uses of remote sensing data and technologies, which are currently underutilized in exploration.
