In this course you will encounter emerging tools, techniques, and sensors in the remote sensing industry, engaging with the scientific literature, guest lecturers from the remote sensing industry, and hands-on activities that focus on the state-of-the-art in remote sensing and image analysis. The focus for a given semester will be adapted based on emerging methods, technologies, and high-impact real-world contexts. Examples of the topics include bathymetric and waveform lidar, synthetic aperture radar, oblique aerial imagery, and Geiger-Mode lidar. You’ll have the chance to explore topics like these on a one-on-one basis with leaders in the profession while at the same time establishing a network of resources for staying ahead of future trends in remote sensing.
