Introduction to Remote Sensing and Geoanalysis


Claudia Kuenzer





Within this course different methods to analyse point pattern statistically and conduct a spatial prediction are covered. Students will learn how to design such analysis, how to avoid caveats, troubleshoot errors and interpret the results.



The lecture “Introduction to Remote Sensing” ensures that participants will gain a solid understanding of the following topics: the role of remote sensing in nowadays world / basics of electromagnetic radiation / history of remote sensing and image acquisition platforms / satellite orbits and orbit geometry / current spaceborne sensors / impacts of the atmosphere / geocorrection of digital imagery / radiometric correction of digital images /principles of image classifications / time series and big data / geodata concepts / geodata standards / geodata visualization / the job market for remote sensing and geo IT specialists.
