SKY VIEW '95 Remote Sensing Project Judging

The Judging Criteria for SKY VIEW designs was divided into three categories: Engineering/Design, Application, and Oral Presentation. The judging was broken down into two sessions; morning and afternoon.

The Morning session had each student team set up a display of their system and their results. A team of judges circulated the floor and asked each of the schools to explain and defend their project for two categories; Engineering/Design and Application. The results of the judging reflects how well the students were able to present their project to the judges.

The Afternoon session was dedicated to oral presentations of each project. Each school was allowed twenty minutes to fully present their design project.

SKY VIEW '95 judges were University of Texas graduate students involved with research in areas of remote sensing and aerospace engineering. Future judging plans are for members of industry and particiating teachers to also be included in the judging ranks. The judges for SKY VIEW '95 were: Christie Schroeder, Clint Slatton, Ido Dubrawsky, Bill Brooks and Fred Neuenschwander

Judging Criteria


The engineering and design of the prototype remote sensing system is where most of the creativity and innovation in the design is demonstrated. Judges were looking for soundness and creativity in design. Any improvements upon existing designs were encouraged. The design of the prototype was judged in the following areas.


Before designing a remote sensing system, each school had to determine an application for which aerial photography would be useful. The applications portion of this project is to demonstrate how each team's remote sensing kit is applied to the study of earth sciences. Judging of the applications was based on the following elements

Oral Presentation

Each team must give a twenty minute oral presentation encompassing the entire project. Presentation of the material was judged on the following criteria:
