Online learning 9 weeks prior to commencing subject on campus
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 services. 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 applications
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.
- master a wide range of skills encountered in GIS practice;
- have a sound basis to the underlying theory of remote sensing;
- have an awareness of the scientific applications of remotely-sensed;
- use data and analytical techniques to address specific environmental problems.
