If you are training to become a town planner, an environmental scientist, a geographer, a geologist, a marine scientist, a biologist, a natural resource manager, this subject is for you. Become a leader in your field and learn how to generate your own spatial data instead of relying on old and often irrelevant information sources. The science of remote sensing is advancing rapidly as sophisticated sensors obtain data with increasingly detailed spatial, spectral, temporal resolution. This has resulted in our ability to extract quantitative, biophysical data (eg temperature, rainfall, biomass, vegetation cover, rock types and mineral composition, urban features). Such information is becoming increasingly important in many professions. This subject focuses on the application of airborne and satellite remote sensing to terrestrial environments for resource inventory, monitoring and environmental problem solving. The theory and practice of relevant image interpretation and digital image analysis techniques are covered through practical and project work.
