EVSP322 Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (3 semester hours)

This course illustrates the fundamental concepts of GIS and remote sensing technologies in the context of land use planning and management. Topics include the physical basis for remote sensing, remote sensing systems, digital image processing, data structures, database design, and spatial data analysis. The course is not intended to provide students with extensive training in particular image processing or GIS packages; however course exercises and the final project will require GIS data analysis and presentation skills.
