The subject is focused on explanation of physical bases allowing to use remote sensing, on technical explanation of methods of data collection/measurement, on behavior of individual materials/land covers as an interaction with electromagnetic radiation, and on possibility to use RS for many applications.



Syllabus of lectures:

1. What is remote sensing

2. Electromagnetic radiation - sources and description

3. Quantities used in remote sensing - radiation types

4. Radiation sources, interactions of radiation

5. Reflection, transmition, absorption

6. Atmosphere, interaction of the atmosphere with electromagnetic radiation

7. Atmosphere, interaction of the atmosphere - scatterring, absorption, transmission

8. Transfer function of atmosphere

9. Radiation characteristics of landscape objects - general analysis

10. Radiation characteristics of landscape objects - for individual land cover types

11. Data collection - analog and digital data

12. Satellite carriers

13. Introduction of image processing

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Overview of RS data according to scales and resolutions - examples

2. Raster data - pixel, digital value, band - verification on examples

3. Image enhancement - histogram stretching

4. Image enhancement - filters

5. Image enhancement - Fourier transformation

6. Image enhancement with several bands - vegetation indices

7. Image enhancement with several bands - band ratio

8. Image enhancement with several bands - IHS - RGB transformation

9. Image enhancement with several bands - PCA, CCA transformation

10. Classification - unsupervised

11. Classification - supervised

12. Classification - supervised

13. Classification accuracy

Study Objective:

To explain possibilities, principles and limits of RS for a wide range of applications like cartography and mapping, water management, forestry, agriculture, environment, urban architecture, disaster management risk reduction and many others.
