GEOG 246 - Airborne Remote Sensing Systems 3 s.h.


This course introduces the principles, equipment, and techniques used to obtain and interpret aerial photography. The course examines the use of aerial photography in scientific research and its application to geographic, environmental and planning problems at the local and regional levels.  Students will plan and fly an airborne mission to acquire imagery using modern equipment such as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, AKA "drones"). Photogrammetric techniques will be used to interpret the photography and study local problems.  The class emphasizes the need for being able to think in a spatial context for a variety of environmental applications.
