GIS specialists who make regular use of digitally acquired spatial reference data and are interested in the source and accuracy of these data would also significantly benefit from this course.
The task of managing land use and the Earth’s resources is becoming increasingly important owing to the rising world population and economic growth. To keep pace with demand, planners, resources managers and application scientists now make considerable use of frequently acquired high-resolution and/or multispectral images.
Sound application depends on the availability of up-to-date, reliable and well-structured data. Satellite images from various sensors and digital aerial photographs are often used as data sources, along with modern techniques such as laser altimetry. Technical means to reference and extract topographic and thematic information from these sources in semi-automated processing environments are continuously under development.
It is essential to train the staff responsible for acquiring such reference data not only in established and upcoming techniques such as object-based classification but also in understanding the relevancy of the acquisition process and its reliability for current GIS specialists.
To equip the participant with conceptual and practical knowledge of digital data acquisition technology. The course focuses on technical implementation of modern Remote Sensing.
Lectures, practical exercises, workshops, packages and project.
Earth Observation sensors and digital image processing; Primary 3D data acquisition from images; Topographic information extraction from sensor data; Advanced image classification and change detection.
