Clayton First semester 2008 (Flexible)
After an introduction to the history and nature of image analysis, with emphasis on early forms (eg air photos) modern digital multi-spectral and hyperspectral data from both active and passive remote sensing systems are introduced. Thus the nature of information in the time series land-cover change archive can be assessed, appropriately analysed, and the value of the results documented. Image Processing will be taught using ESRI Image Analyst.
