Prerequisite: one of the following: 38:170, 42:160, or permission of Instructor.
The intent of this course is to introduce the theoretical foundations of remote sensing systems and provide the technical expertise required to extract qualitative and quantitative information for remotely sensed photographic and digital imagery. The course is divided into three complimentary sections. The first is an introduction to the founding principles and basic elements of a remote sensing system, the second focuses on photographic systems, air photo interpretation, and photogrammetric techniques; and the third introduces student to digital multispectral imagery, sensors, and computer assisted image analysis techniques. The laboratory component of the course provides students with hands-on, practical experience with equipment, software, and techniques for analyzing remotely sensed imagery.
Cross-registered with (Geology) 42:353.
