Remote Sensing: Image Analysis KGG213

Introduction

This unit builds on the theory and skills of KGG103 Remote Sensing: Introduction and focuses on advanced aspects of remotely sensed image analysis. These additional remote sensing analysis skills are highly valued by employers in the spatial industry. The unit will provide you with practical skills in image analysis techniques, such as geometric and atmospheric image correction, image filters, texture measures, image enhancements and transformations, classification algorithms, object-based image analysis, change detection, and accuracy assessment. The theory is illustrated with a range of real-world applications using optical, hyperspectral, and RADAR imagery, and LiDAR data. Computer practicals and an independent project promote practical remote sensing skills in the latest image processing software. The unit is likely to be of interest to students in geography, environmental studies, earth sciences, plant science, zoology, agricultural science, computing and information systems, archaeology, and engineering who want to enhance their remote sensing knowledge and professional skills. This unit forms part of the GIS and Remote Sensing Major and Minor.

Note

Units are offered as On-campus where the majority of teaching will occur at the campus identified.  Units offered Off-campus generally have no requirement for attendance at a physical university campus unless the unit has practical or fieldwork components*:  the campus indicated for an Off-Campus unit is the one at which teaching is administered from.

*Please read the Unit Introduction in the Course and Unit Handbook for attendance requirements for units offered in Off-campus mode.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).

Unit census dates currently displaying for 2017 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2017 will be available from the 1st October 2016.
