In the visual interpretation of remotely sensed images, a variety of image characteristics are brought into consideration: color (or tone in the case of panchromatic images), texture, size, shape, pattern, context, and the like. However, with computer-assisted interpretation, it is most often simply color (i.e.the spectral response pattern) that is used. It is for this reason that a strong emphasis is placed on the use of multispectral sensors (sensors that, like the eye, look at more than one place in the spectrum and thus are able to gauge spectral response patterns), and the number and specific placement of these spectral bands.
