New types of remotely sensed data are being announced every month, it seems. Integration between these data sets and GIS increases annually as well. This paper is an outgrowth of a project funded by the Alaska Science and Technology Foundation to introduce miners to new data and processing technologies. AeroMap U.S., international photogrammetric, GIS, and remote sensing consultants, has created an Internet Map Server Web site designed to educate miners and the mining industry on the possibilities provided by a wide variety of remotely sensed imagery for all phases of mining projects. Data sets, ArcView Spatial Analyst processing, and our Internet Map Server application will be discussed.
