REMOTE SENSING AND GIS
Credit points: 15
This subject covers how remotely sensed data is collected, processed and interpreted, focussing on satellite images but also mentioning other data types. In addition, the basic theory and applications of GIS (geographical information systems) and GPS (global positioning systems) are discussed, in particular how spatial data, including processed satellite images, can be plotted as maps. The practical component of the subject introduces three computer programs that are commonly used for remote sensing and GIS, and demonstrates how these programs can be used in a wide variety of applications.
