Remote sensing is an innovative science and technology that is aiding in numerous modes of transportation. Almost every aspect of transportation can benefit from utilizing imagery and data. Specifically, these technologies can be applied to planning, environmental impact assessment, hazard and disaster response, infrastructure management, traffic assessment, and homeland security planning (“Transportation and Remote Sensing, ” 1999). The United States transportation system is a critical component of our economy and mobility (Williamson, Morain, Budge, & Hepner, 2002). There are millions of miles of roadways and bridges to monitor and maintain. In addition, remote sensing can be utilized towards the development and planning of new infrastructure and transportation systems. Remote sensing provides the unique ability to detect changes in our transportation system on a real-time basis. Imagery can be collected from multiple platforms, including satellite, aircraft-based, and ground-based, which allows data collection to be tailored to a particular transportation application. This paper will provide an overview of some of the potential applications o
