Anthropology | HUMAN ECOLOGY FROM SPACE:INTRO TO REMOTE SENSING
E600 | 0421 | Brondizio


This course combines a historical review on the use of remote sensing in
the social sciences, conceptual discussions on applications of remote
sensing to social science problems, and a formal introduction to remote
sensing data (aerial photo, satellite images) and techniques (digital and
analogical) based on hands on laboratory sessions. The course will consist
of a conceptual and a laboratory session each week. Students will take
active role in both sessions and each student will be responsible for
developing an individual project in their areas of research interest
(dissertation and thesis related projects are especially encouraged).
