Course: Remote Sensing
- Planning and Registration
This lasts 3 days and costs € 1395. Remote Sensing is the collection of data about phenomena in the atmosphere, on the earth's surface and below the earth's surface by means of measurements from satellites and flying platforms (airplanes, balloons,
etc.). It has many application areas, including agriculture, environmental monitoring, nature mapping and spatial enforcement.
Within this subject, many specialists work together to realize operational spatial products. Think of developers of measuring instruments and satellites, software engineers and organization & policy experts. We call this the Remote Sensing chain. The course examines all facets within this chain: from sensor-platform combination, via raw data and image analysis, to final solutions for spatial information questions. Specific topics that are covered are:
the RS process, aerial photography and imaging, photogrammetry, multispectral RS, laser altimetry, thermal infrared and gamma spectroscopy radars and satellites, visual and automatic image interpretation.
During the Remote sensing course, exercises are done with Erdas software.
