Abstract : Remote sening is now a masterpiece in the scientific understanding of the entire Earth system on a global scale which is the goal of the Earth system science for next decades. Remote sensing is also a masterpiece in environmental management since it provides a wealth of information unattainable by traditional means. Some techniques for the analysis of satellite images and their use in scientific domains are presented briefly. Some examples are given, covering meteorology, oceanology, forestry and vegetation studies. This communication focuses itself on the exploitation of such images and techniques in non-scientific domains. The benefit of such data in environmental planning is depicted and is illustrated by a numerical forecasting of regional urban growth. The potential of the use of satellite images by engineering companies is discussed in the light of recent advances in methods and computers. Particular attention is paid to the solar engineering field.
