Advanced remote sensing

This web page contains the material used in the remote sensing component of the ANU course “Advanced remote sensing and GIS” (ENVS3019/ENVS6319). Each of the topics are covered by short videos and some reading material. I have posted it here for anyone who is interested in the material. ANU students can also access this through the course web site on Wattle (registered access).

TIPS:

  • ANU students can also access this through the course web site on Wattle (registered access).
  • Want to download all video slides, reading and/or tutorial materials in one step? You can, via this link.
