With the rise of remotely piloted aircraft systems, increasing computing power and advances in image processing software, the opportunities for vineyard observations through remote sensing are increasing. Remote sensing and image analysis techniques that are becoming more available include object-based image analysis, spatiotemporal analysis, hyperspectral analysis, and topoclimatology. Each of these techniques are described and discussed as potential for development within a viticulture and terroir context. While remote sensing applications are well established at the smaller precision viticulture scale, the larger spatial scale of terroir analysis requires adaptation and new models of analysis.
