Satellites gather data that allow us to assess whether South Africa's rangelands are ecologically in a good or bad condition. The state of our rangelands is of national concern and has a high priority because we can relate the 'good' and 'bad' condition to whether or not they are being used sustainably. Sustainably used, natural resources such as rangeland or cultivation lands will conserve the productivity of the land for a long time.
