CEE 4110 - Applied Remote Sensing and GIS for Environmental Resource Inventory and Analysis

(crosslisted) PLSCS 4110  
Fall. 3 credits. Student option grading.

M. Laba.

Survey of geospatial data and information applied to the science of natural and environmental systems. Experiential approaches introduce basic concepts of photogrammetry and remote sensing and fundamental geospatial concepts such as scale and resolution. The course emphasizes the use and integration of maps, spatial databases, imagery, field data collection methodologies, accuracy assessment techniques and GPS to discriminate, measure, inventory and monitor resources. Course emphasizes the application of concepts and methodologies to student’s own research data.

Outcome 1: Demonstrate a systematic understanding of how raster and vector data can be integrated and used to address contemporary research questions.

Outcome 2: Apply analytical and reasoning skills to determine a logical combination of remotely sensed, ground truth and ancillary data that can address resource inventory needs.

Outcome 3: Develop a firm understanding of the basic structures, types and capabilities of remotely sensed data.

Outcome 4: Develop a working knowledge of remote-sensing software packages.
