GEO/ESC 445:
ADVANCED
REMOTE SENSING


COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Geography/Earth Science 445 is the advanced course in satellite remote sensing that builds on material introduced in GEO/ESC 345.  Techniques of digital image processing using ERDAS Imagine software are examined.  The material includes satellite data interpretation, imagery preparation and manipulation, advanced digital image processing, transformations and advanced spectral analyses.  The course requirements include exams, class participation, exercises and a project using original satellite images.



COURSE OBJECTIVES:
The main objective of Geography/Earth Science 445 is to advance the student's knowledge of digital analyses techniques in satellite-based remote sensing.  The objective of the project is to perform an analysis of the student's choice.  A selection of satellite images are available for student use.
