Abstract

Remote sensing is defined as collecting and interpreting information on a target without being in physical contact with the object. Today, remote sensing technology is enable to produce high quality images including aerial photograph, landsat, SPOT and radar imageries. Development in digital image processing supported by high-tech computer hardware and software produce remote sensing data that are not only usable for reconnaissance study, but also for detail analysis. Remote sensing has proved to be powerful tool in hydrocarbon exploration. In Indonesia, oil companies have widely used remote sensing technique in finding out hydrocarbon. Integration of remote sensing data with other subsurface exploration data has led to the discovery of several major oil fields in the region.
