Building your remote sensing curriculum and labs

My blog posts this year have focused a lot on the growth that I’m seeing in remote sensing programs at colleges and universities.  Programs that have focused on image processing are adding new data types such as LiDAR and SAR.  And programs that in the past focused solely on GIS are now adding remote sensing to their curriculum.  One of the challenges faced by adding new software and new classes into a department is creating lessons and lab exercises for the students.

This year Exelis VIS has been assisting colleges and universities that are beginning to teach Remote Sensing and GIS with ENVI by providing our Exploring ENVI training materials to be hosted in their labs and used by instructors as a teaching aid.

Exploring ENVI covers:

  • Mastering the Basics
  • Raster Data Management
  • Image Display Concepts
  • Example Application: Vegetation Analysis
  • Vector Layers
  • Regions of Interest and Classification Techniques
  • Principle Components Analysis
  • Spectral Libraries and Hyperspectral Processing Tools
  • Extending ENVI
  • Color Transforms and Data Fusion Techniques
  • Feature Extraction
  • Mosaicking in ENVI

Are you teaching Remote Sensing or GIS?  If so, what are the types of teaching tools do you use most?

    why always using ENVI for digital image processing in remote sensing?

    ENVI is the geospatial image processing and analysis software we develop, you can learn more here:
