UG Coursework Unit
Level of learning
GLY00219 Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems
Examines remote sensing and GIS as tools used by earth scientists to study the spatial associations, spatial extent of earth surface features and provide necessary information to decision makers to manage earth resources. Students will primarily concentrate on the principles, sensor characteristics, extraction of information from remotely sensed data and applications of remote sensing with some relevance to GIS and will experience 'hands-on' training in computer processing of digital data.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:||GA1||GA2||GA3||GA4||GA5||GA6||GA7|
|1||understand remote sensing, processing and some advanced GIS concepts|
|2||have developed skills in processing a variety of remotely sensed data|
|3||have developed skills in combining remotely sensed data with GIS data layers|
|4||have become familiar with the hardware, software and data used in GIS and remote sensing|
