Force and the Johnson Space Center will jointly design and implement

the informationsystem using Landsat satellitedata as the operational

base. Aircraft photographicand electronicdata, ground truth measure-

ments, and environmentaldata from weather stationswill supplement

the satellitedata during the early verificationphases of the project.

NASA will

provide

Natural Resource InformationSystem will integratethe new system into

their existing informationservicesand will evaluate the usefulnessand

cost-effectivenessof this space-agemethodology.

Work on the project has begun already and consists of identifying

the hardware requiredto put the system together. The scope of the
