This course, which is largely laboratory based, provides an in-depth understanding of image processing, analysis and interpretation. Topics include human vision and colour, the construction, display, enhancement and filtering of images, geometric, radiometric and atmospheric correction, supervised and unsupervised classification, principal components analysis, and spatial modeling. The course also demonstrates the theory of hyperspectral and radar remote sensing through lectures and practical computer-based processing. The course provides training in both remote sensing and GIS software, including ERDAS, ENVI, ArcView and Arc/Info.
