Applied Remote Sensing and GIS for Landscape Analysis
The course covers theory and applications of spatial analysis, modeling and visualization in landscape analysis, using remote sensing and GIS. During the course students are trained in software familiarization and methods for processing and visualization in scientific work.
The course is part of Master's Programme in Geomatics with Remote Sensing and GIS, and Master's Programme in Landscape Ecology. The course can also be read as a separate course autumn term period 2.
After the course, students are expected to be able:
- to critically evaluate research findings by reproducing and analyzing selected portions of published research
- to use remote sensing and GIS in physical geographical analyses
- to formulate and carry out independent projects with the use of remote sensing and GIS
- to extract and process quantitative geo- and biophysical measurements from geodata
- Remote Sensing, 7.5 credits
- GIS, 7.5 credits
Instruction consists of lectures, seminars, exercises and project work.
