In the case of ranging instruments such as laser scanner (also known as LiDAR, Light Detection And Ranging) and groundpenetrating radar (GPR), the concept of spatial resolution also includes the range resolution. This is mainly determined by the duration of the transmitted pulse and hence largely independent of the height. 2 Spectral resolution Spectral resolution refers to the ability to distinguish between radiation of different wavelengths. e. 2). Narrower bands correspond to higher spectral resolutions.

This kind of imagery is thus an approximate substitute for aerial photography, although generally with poorer spatial resolution. 4 3D-visualisation of Hintereisferner made using an Ikonos stereopair of August 12, 2003. l. l.
