Advanced Remote Sensing Using QGIS Software

Course Description:

This course builds on the principles and applications of remote sensing introduced in the introductory course, and focuses on more advanced topics such as hyperspectral image analysis, change detection, and object-based image analysis. Students will learn how to use QGIS to analyze these types of data and to produce more sophisticated products.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

Understand the advanced principles of remote sensing

Use QGIS software to process and analyze advanced remote sensing data

Produce maps and other products from advanced remote sensing data

Apply advanced remote sensing to solve real-world problems
