About the Course

The aim of the course is to provide in-depth knowledge in remote sensing in connection with geographical information systems (GIS), to provide in-depth exercise in the practice of remote sensing, and to provide in-depth knowledge of principles for the introduction and application of remote sensing. Remote sensing data sources are both 2D (e.g., satellite spectral data) and 3D (e.g., point clouds from LiDAR or photogrammetry). 

The majority of the course is devoted to practical exercises with various software related to remote sensing and GIS, along with lectures and reading that provide an introduction to theory, application areas, drone flight planning, data analysis, and scripting for data processing.
