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.

Courses content:

  1. Basic concepts of remote sensing and digital imaging
  2. Platforms and sensors
  3. Information extraction
  4. Image classification
  5. Multitemporal processing and change detection


  • Study a real (geospatial or other) problematic using remote sensing and image processing techniques.
