GEOG 369 - Remote Sensing of the Environment

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about a surface or an object without direct contact. Increasingly, remotely sensed imagery and data are being used in research and by the public (e.g., Google Earth). Course objectives include developing an understanding of fundamental photogrammetry and the physical properties of satellite and aircraft-derived imagery, and learning about how interdisciplinary problems may be solved using different remote sensing applications. We explore the use of the following types of data: aerial photography; multispectral, hyperspectral, and thermal imaging; RADAR; and LIDAR. Geographical applications of remote sensing are emphasized. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Freshman may be added with instructor permission. Prerequisites: sophomores, juniors, and seniors only who have taken at least one of the following: GEOG 222 , GEOG 353 , or GEOG 355 ; Freshman and those with experience in ArcGIS may be added with instructor permission.
