ENV-4020 Remote Sensing

4 credits (with lab)

Prerequisite: ENV-1050. Juniors and seniors only.

This course introduces the basic principles on which remote sensing is based. Aerial photographic interpretation and photogrammetry are studied as well as interpreted images from non-photographic sensors (such as satellite images). The two-hour lab is designed to provide a hands-on approach to such applications as air photo interpretation, land-use/land-cover mapping, geological and soil mapping and geographic information systems (GIS).
