It seems that "remote sensing" is two separate words, so the tag should have a hyphen (i.e., be ). (I do not think this justifies having a synonym.)

I am tagging this even though I do not think there would be much debate about whether "remote sensing" should be treated as two words.

You are correct, there should be a hyphen. I edited the one question with the tag, although it is closed and will likely be deleted sometime, resulting in the tag being lost.

  • $\begingroup$ This is moderator only, but another procedure to rename tags is using the merge option when creating synonyms, and it'll be done in the background without additional revisions to the questions that were using the previous tag name. It can also be helpful when the previous tag name already had a tag wiki, so we don't create orphaned tag wikis and need to manually copy/paste. Just thought it's worth mentioning, I realized this is an option just a few weeks ago myself too, when I wondered how Anna Lear did that for some tags that this was requested for and before we had our own pro tem mods. ;) $\endgroup$ – TildalWave Sep 24 '13 at 13:09
  • $\begingroup$ I noticed that it only had one question but not that the question was closed. Well, thanks anyway for what will become nothing. (Sigh.) $\endgroup$ – Paul A. Clayton Sep 24 '13 at 14:20
