Abstract

*THIS IS NOT A GIS TRAINING

Tutor: Dr Jonathan C-W Chan
The objective is to provide a crash course on some basics and fundamentals for processing of remote sensing data, and introduction to methods (e.g. supervised classification) and perhaps some more novel data (hyperspectral/spectroscopy imaging).

An intensive training covers briefly topics listed below (3-4 hrs)
1. Basic elements of optical remote sensing. Solar radiation, electromagnetic wave, atmospheric transmission and spectroscopy imaging.
2. Understanding remote sensing images. Basic elements and configurations: Spectral, spatial and radiometric resolutions. Spaceborne Earth Observation missions (Landsat, SPOT, ASTER, Sentinel, etc) and sensor characteristics
3. Preprocessing of satellite images. Geometric correction. Atmospheric correction.
4. Classification of remote sensing data – method and assessment. Requirements for Classification of satellite images. Supervised and unsupervised methods and accuracy assessment.
