Remote Sensing Image Analysis and Applications

Course Description

From satellites gathering imagery from hundreds of miles above the Earth's surface to aerial systems mounted with lasers capable of generating 3D maps with centimeter accuracy, we're gathering more data about our Earth from above than ever before. This course will help you make sense of these complex and exciting datasets. Whether your interest is in natural disasters, environmental assessment, or national security, we'll give you the tools, methods, and techniques to extract actionable and meaningful information from these data. This course will help you understand that an image is more than just a pretty picture.

This course is part of the following programs: Graduate Certificate in Geospatial Intelligence, Masters of Geographic Information Systems, and Master of Professional Studies in Homeland Security.
