Remote sensing of ocean color: Assessment of the water-leaving radiance bidirrectional effects on the atmospheric diffuse transmittance for SeaWiFS and MODIS intercomparisons.
Plane surveying with angle and distance measurements; leveling; topographic mapping; traverse and area computations; horizontal and vertical curves; cross sections; triangulation; state plane coordinates; 3-D surveying using global positioning system (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing technology for surveying and mapping applications. Emphasisis on the use of the computer for solving typical field and office problems. Field exercises in conjunction with the classroom exercises in utilizing classical and electronic instruments and COGO/CAD software.
Remote Sensing, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal.
Prerequisites: or . Principles of remote sensing for Geomatics application build on the core competencies introduced in Introduction to Surveying. This course focuses on computer generated solutions from technologies used for the acquisition and production of geospatial data via terrestrial, airborne, and space-based platforms; to understand remote sensing technology for solutions on scientific environmental problems; develop skills and techniques to enhance, interpret, and analyze digital imagery using computer-based methods.
