Remote Sensing Essentials

Event date: 
Saturday, April 18, 2020 - 9:30am to Sunday, April 19, 2020 - 5:30pm

We are pleased to announce an intense two-day program that offers the essential insights into the science of remote sensing. The program provides a hands-on exposure to using free and open source geospatial software and accessing publicly available datasets. It will include right from installing the requisite software to accessing the (free) satellite data, processing, perform classification and composing land cover maps. This can apply to a wide range of studies from landscape ecology / land-use land cover change studies to studies monitoring urban growth. The program is aimed at students, researchers, and practitioners who would want to make use of the (now) abundant satellite remote sensing data for their needs.  

Place: Bengaluru, Karnataka.

Session Details:

Session 1: Appreciating the Science of Remote Sensing

Session 2: Getting started with QGIS: Overview and Installation | Accessing Datasets from Relevant Sources

Session 3: Working with Satellite Remote Sensing Datasets
