Catalogue data

AbstractThe course "Methoden der Fernerkundung" (Remote Sensing Methods) introduces advanced remote sensing methods and techniques for interpreting and analysing optical, RADAR and LiDAR data. The large variety of topics covered in this module range from radiative transfer over environmental monitoring to geometric and radiometric data processing techniques.
ObjectiveAt the end of the module, students should: • Have a thorough understanding of advanced image understanding techniques and can apply these to optical, RADAR and LiDAR imagery. • Be able to choose the appropriate methods and use them to solve a given real-world task. • Be able to write basic programming scripts and use common remote sensing software to analyze geospatial data. • Be able to work scientifically on a given project (e.g. defining hypothesis and research questions). • Be able to comprehensively interpret data, critically discuss the results and draw the main conclusions.
