G&ES 390 Remote Sensing & Digital Image Processing
Fall 2013
Northeastern Illinois University

    The specific objectives of the course are as follows:
  1. Develop a basic understanding of how remotely sensed and geographic data are represented;
  2. Introduce students to the basic concepts, data, and methods of remote sensing and imaging processing;
  3. Learn about the properties of light as well as the sensors and platforms used to analyze it;
  4. Learn how to obtain and analyze RS and digital data to produce thematic maps;
  5. Learn the concepts of landscape patterns and the methods used to decipher them;
  6. At the end of the class, through weekly lab projects and a final individual project, students will be able to conduct analyses of earth systems using satellite remote sensing and digital imaging data using ERDAS Imagine software.
