Description Visual interpretation of satellite data is a new trend of obtaining geographical information for the common populations. Research participants (11, 15 and 19 years old students) were asked to solve spatial tasks on both true and false colour images. Differences in the efficiency of task solving regarding various types of source documents were analyzed. The generated scores were evaluated according to the participants' age and gender. The research results show that young nonexperts interpret satellite data in false and true colour successfully. (There is also ISSN 2198-4182 and on-line ISBN 978-3-319-40585-8.)
