Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English
ITC, University of Twente

The task of managing land use and the Earth’s resources is becoming increasingly important owing to the rising world population and economic growth. To keep pace with demand, planners, resources managers and application scientists now make considerable use of frequently acquired high-resolution and/or multispectral images.

latitude: 

52

longitude:

Training Target Audience: 

The course is intended to train staff to function at the supervisory level in rapidly changing map and geo-information production environments. It focuses on state-of-the-art technology in the field of remote sensing and digital image processing for information extraction, as well as on its consequences for applications by GIS specialists. The course is targeted at staff from government agencies and private companies who have practical professional experience in remote sensing and/or photogrammetry and who wish to become familiar with state-of-the-art technology. GIS specialists who make regular use of digitally acquired spatial reference data and are interested in the source and accuracy of these data would also significantly benefit from this course.
