The emphasis is on processing and application of data collected in the optical and thermal regions using passive and active sensors.
Aims and Objectives
Having successfully completed this module you will be able to:
- Describe the principles of remote sensing, spectral measurements and remote sensing systems
- Discuss the need for image pre-processing and assess the pros and cons of different methods
- Develop skills in critical assessment of published papers and in choosing appropriate image pre-processing and analysis methods.
- Discuss the use of remote sensing data in biophysical product generation
- Illustrate the use of image processing software in routine image pre-processing and analysis in a rigorous and self-reflective manner
