Remote sensing is a powerful tool - it can be used to map the topography of the ocean floor, track the ash plume of an erupting volcano, or understand drought patterns on tribal lands. As the technology becomes easier for tribal land managers to use, the biggest challenge isn’t navigating the data - it’s navigating the human relationships and conversations about how to make that data more useful.
