In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

This set of pages is a guide to the theory of remote sensing technologies, especially as it is applied to natural area management. It starts with a definition of remote sensing and a review of its historical development. Then it describes the pros and cons of digital data vs. good old fashioned film emulsion. An in-depth description of data types is provided (i.e. panchromatic data, multispectral data, hyperspectral, etc.). Definitions of spatial/spectral "resolutions" and "coverage" are provided. Finally, commonly used remote sensing platforms are profiled.
