MOOC: Learn the basics of Remote Sensing in ArcGIS

  • Description
  • Yes I want to do this MOOC

In this course you will learn the basics of using remote sensing tools in ArcGIS. For this course you need an ArcGIS 10.x software license (you can download a free trial from the ESRI website) and some basic knowledge of GIS concepts.

What will you learn?

  • Basics of Remote sensing and ArcGIS
  • Satellite images and spectral band introduction
  • Georeferencing, defining projection, Geoprocessing tools
  • Raster Analysis
  • Classification Statistical functions
  • Imagery and raster charts
  • Hydrology tools and Watershed analysis

fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it also has military, intelligence, commercial, economic, planning, and humanitarian applications.

In current usage, the term "remote sensing" generally refers to the use of satellite or aircraft-based sensor technologies to detect and classify objects on Earth. It includes the surface and the atmosphere and oceans, based on propagated signals (e.g. electromagnetic radiation). It may be split into "active" remote sensing (when a signal is emitted by a satellite or aircraft to the object and its reflection detected by the sensor) and "passive" remote sensing (when the reflection of sunlight is detected by the sensor).

ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) for working with maps and geographic information operated by the Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri). It is used for creating and using maps, collecting geographic data, analyzing mapped information, sharing and discovering geographic information, using maps and geographic information in a range of applications, and managing geographic information in a database.

The system provides an infrastructure to make maps and geographic information available across an organization, in a community, and openly on the Internet.
