UW Winter Quarter - ESRM430 Introduction to Remote Sensing of Environment

Want to be on the cutting edge of science? Learn about the newest tools and techniques in the field of remote sensing? In Remote Sensing of Environment (ESRM430) you will be introduced to the latest technologies, like LiDAR and surface from motion and object-based data processing. Please forward to any interested parties.

*5 Credits (no requirements, opened to non-ESRM majors)*

Summary: You will be exposed to the principles of remote sensing using a combination of the traditional and latest techniques such as, automated image segmentation/feature extraction and the processing of LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) point clouds. Working with a conventional set of aerial and high resolution satellite imagery in the first half of the course and with LiDAR data in the second half of the course, you will have the opportunity to apply these principles and obtain hands-on experience in the processing of remotely sensed data. Environmental applications including digital terrain models, land-use land-cover, watershed analysis, change analysis, forest resources, environmental monitoring, land-use planning, urban-suburban-forestry interfaces, and outdoor recreation will be discussed and illustrated throughout the course.

Lectures:  T & Th  12:30 – 1:20
Four lab sessions available (choose one):  Session T or TH 2:30 –  3:50 T or Th 4:00 – 5:20
