Abstract: Remote sensing (RS) technology has played an increasingly important role in the fields of geology and ore deposit research and been widely used in various aspects. It is not only convenient, but also accurate and economical. This approach began to be used abroad in the 1970s. After about 20 years, it began to be used in China. The prospecting for subsurface geothermal resources is still a worldwide problem, and RS technology provides an effective means to solve this problem. This technology was used with less input to quickly obtain high accuracy results to explore concealed geothermal resources in Taizhou city in the Jiangsu province.
