Land Use, Land Cover Analysis
Satellite data is used to determine what is on and below the surface of the earth in terms of vegetation and minerals at the various times of year. This is useful for petroleum and mining industry.

Land Area Signal Propagation
as influenced by terrain. Satellite data is used to determine the radio spectrum "shadow" caused by the terrain characteristics. This influences the design of cellular antenna and their locations. GIS analyses can help optimize and speed up the process of site selection.
