GEO 121 - Remote Sensing and Aerial Photogrammetry

3 Cr.

Remote Sensing involves the collection of information from a distance and using it to analyze and interpret small or large areas of the Earth’s surface or any extra-terrestrial body. There are many satellites in orbit today that can collect imagery via photography, electronic sensor arrays, thermal sensors, radar, laser, microwave and other devices which scan the wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. All this data and imagery require a trained `eye’ and sophisticated computer software if they are to be interpreted and used effectively in tasks such as managing our environment. Photogrammetry is the technique of measuring objects (2D or 3D) from photographs or digital imagery.
