The Remote Sensing concentration is a second term option of the Geographic Sciences – Advanced Diploma program.
Remote Sensing is the study of earth observation systems and applications. In practice, it is usually associated with applied computer analysis of digital geospatial imagery. Remote Sensing is a rapidly expanding discipline with multiple applications in forestry, geology, defence/intelligence, disaster management, conservation, oceanography, meteorology, urban analysis and agriculture. With hands-on experience using industry standard software, learn how to interpret satellite images, process digital images and understand the theoretical basis for remote sensing and aerial imaging platforms.
Remote Sensing is closely aligned with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS). One of the exciting aspects of this concentration is the opportunity to apply image interpretation skills in the field using GIS and GPS.
This program is located at NSCC's Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS). COGS is the Lawrencetown site of Annapolis Valley Campus.
