GEOG 294: Remote Sensing

This course provides an introduction to the use of remotely sensed data in environmental studies. Remote sensing is the science of acquiring data using techniques that do not require actual contact with the object or area being observed. Remote sensing technology has a multidisciplinary application and has been widely used by disciplines such a Geography, Geology, Ecology, Climatology, Urban and Regional Planning, Soil Sciences and Disaster Management. This course will briefly discuss many different uses of remotely sensed data, but the main focus will be on natural resource management and ecological application.
