This topic introduces students to the theory and application of remote sensing to a wide range of disciplines. Topic material includes the nature of electromagnetic radiation, its interaction with the atmosphere and Earth surface features; sensors and data sources; the treatment of distortion in remotely sensed imagery, image classification and classification accuracy assessment. Professional image processing software is used to provide students with hands-on experience of a range of digital image analysis techniques that are used to extract useful Earth resource information from satellite data.
This topic aims to educate students in the design of airborne missions for the capture of remotely sensed data and in the processing of remotely sensed imagery to create products such as orthometric images, digital surface models, 3D object models and thermal maps. Students will also gain an understanding of the application of these technologies to a range of applications.
