(Prereq: GEOG 200  or permission of the instructor) An introductory course that provides students with an overview of earth observation through remote sensed images from aircraft and satellites. Students are introduced to basic concepts such as the origin of remote sensing and earth observation programs, as well as remote sensing technologies such as aerial and satellite imaging systems and related geospatial technologies such as GIS that are utilized in processing, analyzing and presenting data gathering from earth observation sensors. Through a combination of lectures, discussions, and hands-on exercises, students explore the remote sensing process and how it is used for earth observation, types of remotely-sensed data, analysis methods, and applications of earth observation techniques.
