GSTC 460 Satellite Remote Sensing

Remote sensing through the use of satellites and other aircraft is the science of acquiring and analyzing information about feature or phenomena from a distance. Satellite-borne sensors observe, measure and record the electromagnetic spectrum reflected or emitted by the earth and its environment for subsequent analysis and extraction of the information. Applications for satellite remote sensing include military surveillance, oil, insurance, real estate, transportation, city planning, environmental monitoring and other uses. The student works with raster-based satellite and aerial images to manipulate and analyze the electromagnetic signatures gathered from this technology.
