Course

Remote sensing and image interpretation part of Cutting Edge:GIS and Remote Sensing:Courses
This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of remote sensing. Class lectures will focus on a range of concepts and techniques key to understanding how remote sensing data are acquired, displayed, restored, enhanced, and analyzed. Topics include remote sensing principles, aerial photography, image interpretation, major remote sensing systems, image display and enhancement, information extraction, accuracy assessment, and remote sensing in environmental research and applications. Weekly exercises will provide you with ample opportunity to gain hands-on experience using the image processing software ITT ENVI. We will also explore a range of practical issues related to the application of remote sensing to solving real world problems. This class involves a heavy use of computer software and projects.
