Spatial Data Handling – Remote Sensing Basics
Remote Sensing Basics: This interactive, computer based module is intended as an overview on remote sensing principles and touches on physics, environmental sciences, computer sciences and geography. The course provides an introduction to earth observation on the terrestrial environment using freely available software tools. No prior knowledge of the subject is assumed. The module is structured to take students from the underpinning physical principles of the subject, through the properties of the most prominent sensors, the basic principles of image interpretation to examples of the applications of remote sensing data.
