Course Number: GEOG 15
Course Objectives:
  • Define and describe remote sensing and explain its applications and history.
  • Define and describe basics of electromagnetic spectrum and interactions with various types of media.
  • Describe commonly used remote sensing sensors and image acquisition methods.
  • Select appropriate data set for remote sensing application based on spectral, temporal, radiometric and spatial resolution.
  • Analyze and explain remote sensing purposes, advantages, and limitations.
