ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT USING REMOTE SENSING

GISC305

Description

This course covers remote sensing fundamentals as they apply to mapping of Earth’s surface and understanding how the earth works. These approaches include Earth observation in varying forms such as from sensors on satellites, aircraft, drones and ships. Understanding the electromagnetic spectrum of radiant energy and the radiation emitted from Earth’s surface provide a foundation for understanding of the types of imagery available and their characteristics. Image enhancement, classification and quantitative techniques are explored with attention to integration with GIS datasets. Application of remote sensing for land cover change, vegetation classification, and environmental quality are explored. Students will observe environmental changes over spatial and temporal periods through the qualitative and quantitative processing of remote sensing at a local, regional, and global scale.
