Introduction to Remote Sensing Course

Discover the power of remote sensing. Experience, feel, analyze and see everything you can do without being present.

Remote Sensing (RS) contains a set of remote capture techniques and analysis of the information that allows us to know the territory without being present. The abundance of Earth observation data allows us to address many urgent environmental, geographical and geological issues.

Students will have a solid understanding of the physical principles of Remote Sensing, including the concepts of electromagnetic radiation (EM), and will also explore in detail the interaction of EM radiation with the atmosphere, water, vegetation, minerals and other types. of land from a remote sensing perspective. We will review several fields where Remote Sensing can be used, including agriculture, geology, mining, hydrology, forestry, the environment and many more.

This course guides you to learn and implement data analysis in Remote Sensing and improve your geospatial analysis skills.
