The UNSW Advanced Techniques in Remote Sensing (GEOS3811) course and Remote Sensing Applications (GEOS9012) course is designed to refresh basic concepts and environmental applications of remote sensing. It concerns advanced techniques for data processing with a focus on land surface dynamics. The course introduces different platforms (satellites, planes, drones), sensors (photogrammetry, multispectral, radar) and analysis techniques (image segmentation and programming).
You’ll analyse Earth observation data across a variety of spatial resolutions and applications such as geography, ecology and geoscience. The course is conducted through a combination of lectures, computer laboratories and fieldwork.
By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:
