This course covers optical remote sensing from satellites and airborne platforms. The different systems are presented. The students will acquire skills in image processing and machine learning to extract end-products, such as land cover or risk maps, from the images.
- Basic concepts of remote sensing and digital imaging
- Platforms and sensors
- Information extraction
- Image classification
- Multitemporal processing and change detection
- Study a real (geospatial or other) problematic using remote sensing and image processing techniques.
