Aims, contents and method of the course

Earth observation represents a major information source for geo-applications. New fields of remote sensing application are evolving due to the improvement of spatial and spectral resolution. But data acquisition alone is not sufficient to benefit from these technological developments.

Assessment and permitted materials

Internet research for written composition
Homeworks with the programme Erdas Imagine

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The lecture aims at providing the fundamentals of remote sensing and basics of digital image processing.

Examination topics

It is rather necessary to develop methods and techniques for transforming the huge amount of data acquired by satellite sensors into useful information for the different fields of application. A prerequisite to perform this task is an understanding of physical fundamentals of remote sensing and the properties of sensors, knowledge of mathematical and statistical models and algorithms for analysing the data and finally an insight into application processes, where the extracted information is used.
