The research is motivated by a number of natural phenomenons which allow monitoring only from a distance such as the occurrence of many natural disasters as well as the life of flora and fauna in the nature. Meanwhile the progress of the research on remote monitoring has proved the the quality of remote object presentation is low. Therefore it is necessary to identify the characteristic of a digital image obtained from remote monitoring i.e. it is accomplished using histogram and frequency comparison against the image obtained from a closed distance acquisition. The research shows that the image obtained from remote monitoring hold a shorter distribution of pixel value compared to the image obtained from a closed distance. And comparison in the frequency domain shows that the image obtained from remote monitoring presents fewer high frequencies, thus its presentation in the space domain looks dull.
