For each feature you should note the following information: WWW site URL, kind of image, date of image acquisition, image identification code, and brief description of what is depicted in the image. Use the file "save as..." command to download images to your personal subdirectory. You will make up a short HTML file to provide text and display for each of the images—see sample.

<h1>Multispectral Image of Timbuktu</h1>
The city of Timbuktu is depicted near the center of this scene from Mali,
Africa. The image is a multispectral composite that was created from
green, red, and infrared bands of the Interquest pushbroom scanner (IPS),

PanAfrican Remote Sensing Center in Bamako, Mali.<p>

You may use the Windows "Notepad" or "Wordpad" editor to create the HTML ascii text. In this way, you can edit files and see results together. Or you can use another word processor in the "no format" mode.
