The Remote Sensing Technology concentration is a second year option of the Geographic Sciences diploma program.
Remote Sensing is the study of earth observation systems and applications. It's a rapidly expanding discipline with multiple applications in forestry, geology, defence/intelligence, disaster management, conservation, oceanography, meteorology, urban analysis and agriculture.
With the increasing availability and use of digital airborne remote sensing systems such as the Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (hyperspectral), Digital Sensor System (photography) and the Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (LiDAR), there is a growing demand for personnel skilled in operating these systems.
This concentration provides skills in:
- Static and kinematic GPS
- Hardware operation
- Project planning
- Sensor data processing
