Remote Sensing
Fátima Pina e Carla Madureira Cruz
Course Plan: 40 hoursContents:1st dayRemote Sensing: Concept and forms of acquisition. Products: Images, photographs, numerical models (elevation and vegetation indices). Sensor types: active and passive; land, aerial and orbitals; panchromatic, multi and hyperspectral. Applications. Multidisciplinary relations. Electromagnetic spectrum and spectral band. Association of spectral response to subjects. Characteristics of Sensor Systems; Resolutions; Choice of Sensor. Resolutions: spatial, spectral, radiometric and temporal. Concept of digital image and pixel. Color Composite. Examples and case studies.2nd dayDigital Image Processing: Correcting images (contrast, georeferencing, atmospheric correction). Color Composite. Theory and Examples. Practice with corrections for satellite image generation.3rd dayDigital Image Processing: Digital Classification. Theory, types and examples. Practice of supervised and unsupervised classification. Generation of thematic map.4th dayVegetation Indices: Theory, types and examples. Mixture Model: Theory and practice. Exercises.5th dayObject-Oriented Classification: Data Mining and Knowledge Modeling. Presentation of solutions. People in Pixel: estimating population totals per pixel.
