Description:

GeoTech Center presents a series of model courses on GIS, spatial technologies, and related subjects to provide students with the professional skills necessary to succeed in geospatial technology careers. Introduction to Remote Sensing seeks to introduce students to the fundamental concept of remote sensing of Earth’s surface using a series of lectures, readings, quizzes, application papers, examinations, and labs. The course broadly orients students to the “physical principles on which remote sensing is based, history and future trends, sensors and their characteristics, image data sources, and image classification, interpretation and analysis techniques.” The ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 software is required for this course.

Course Information:

The Introduction to Remote Sensing course can be implemented either as a stand-alone instructional unit or as an entry-level course in a geospatial program. However, it is recommended that students have already taken GST 101: Introduction to Geospatial Technology. It is arranged into six modules with associated learning objectives and related assignments. In this course, viewers can access six lectures which may be viewed once they create an account on The National Information, Security & Geospatial Technologies Consortium (NISGTC) site as well as the associated course materials in zip files. Each lecture corresponds with a module in the course. The six modules include: Overview of Remote Sensing; Physical Foundations; Sensor Platforms, Image Processing, Basics, Band Ratios, and Transformations; Photogrammetry; Image Classification; and Accuracy Assessment.

Upon completion of the course, students will have an understanding of the basic concepts upon which remote sensing is based, how to select an appropriate data set for remote sensing, describe passive and active remote sensing systems, describe the fundamentals of photogrammetry, perform basic remote sensing workflows to solve problems, describe future trends in remote sensing, apply basic concepts, methods and uses of accuracy assessment, and understand the results of a remote sensing workflow.

Also included are several zip files which contain the documents associated with the course, including: Course Development Documents, Course Download, Lab Materials, and Lab Data.

For orientation purposes, viewers should begin with the Syllabus pdf and Course Development Documents zip file.

Course Contents:

The attached files associated with Remote Sensing course exist in a variety of formats including .docx, .doc, .tmp, pdf, .xml, .story, .py, and a wide variety of laboratory data file types. Below is a list of the files organized by zip file, with the file name and size provided in parenthesis.
