Computer based techniques for digital image display, analysis and interpretation including the acquisition and processing of optical, hyperspectral, thermal and radar remotely sensed imagery will be introduced. Laboratory work will use practical techniques including image enhancement, geometric correction, mapping. Classification and data interpretation will be developed with a focus on the use of earth-resource imagery for a wide range of environmental applications including geology, vegetation and forestry, agriculture, oceanographic and regional and urban analysis.
