...The use of satellite imagery in the exploration of minerals, was usually a combination of data from panchromatic and multispectral images used in the mining and oil during the last decade. With the rise of high-resolution satellite sensors in the last ten years has increased greatly, as GeoEye-1 (0.41m) and WorldView-2 (0.46m), both panchromatic and multispectral color that is used for improving the use of spectral analysis for mapping, monitoring and analysis of vegetation classification and retrieval of culture, normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) classification and mapping, lithological classification, registration changes, environmental monitoring, development, planning, visualization and simulation environments such as digital elevation models (DEM) and 3D terrain modeling.
