  1. [remote sensing] In imagery, the capture and recording of a discrete, spatial, electromagnetic signal with a sensor. For electro-optical sensors, sampling rate is determined by the optics and spacing of photosensitive cells on the focal plane, resulting in a point spread function and other source image characteristics. If an image is geometrically processed further, is is said to be resampled.
