Description: 

Remote sensing, including aerial and satellite imagery is one of the most useful and important spatial information sources in both GIS and environmental sciences defined broadly. This course will enable you to effectively use remote sensing data and methods in research and resource management in fields ranging from conservation ecology, GIS/informatics, environmental health and justice, climate change, geology, urban studies, biodiversity, land management, sustainability science and many others. We teach the broadly applicable principles and methods through lecture and lab and then students investigate and develop a small-group presentation on an application area of remote sensing of their particular interest. Lectures provide a comprehensive introduction to remote sensing, and labs present opportunity for hands-on experience of the main types of analyses using widely-used ERDAS IMAGINE and ArcGIS software and different types of remote sensing imagery.
