Remote sensing basics


Are you looking to get up to speed with the basics of remote sensing? This webinar will provide an introduction to remote sensing fundamentals including electromagnetic energy, color theory, spectral pattern analysis, and analog vs. digital imagery.  Justification for the use of remote sensing will be discussed along with definitions of important concepts and terms.  The webinar will conclude with a brief introduction to Landsat imagery, one of the longest running and most important satellite programs for earth observation.
