Principles of Remote Sensing course
The materials provided after registration is a full introductory course to Remote Sensing with a 5 days duration and an estimated study load of 40 hours. The course consists of presentations, exercises including the open-source ILWIS software.
Participants learn the basics of a free Remote Sensing software, the spatial handling of imagery and image arithmetic, image classification and data manipulation and a glance on qualitative remote sensing.
The course contains the following topics:
- Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and Sensors
- Remote Sensing system, Platforms and sensors.
- Geometric aspects of imagery
- Image visualization and enhancement
- Visual interpretation of Remote Sensing Images
- Image and tables arithmetic (in combination with practical)
- Vegetation indexes (reading and calculation in combination with practical)
- Digital image classification (in combination with practical)
- Radiometric and atmospheric corrections (in combination with practical)
All the material for theory and practicals are distributed in a single zip-file. Once opened 7 folders are created:
- Folder 1 Material: containing the e-books relevant to the course
- Folder 2 Software: ILWIS 3.3.1 academic version and patch to make the software free. Includes the installation instructions in a readme file. The software must be installed to solve all practicals.
- Folder 3-7: material per day for the lectures/theory and the practicals.
