Soft Computing for Environmental Applications and Remote SensingIntroduction of Remote Sensing and Environmental Applications

Fabio Scotti - Manuel Roveri

Università degli studi, Milano, Italy


Course introduction

Course introduction

  • This course introduces the theory and techniques of remote sensing and their application to environmental analysis.

  • In the first part of the course we present the acquisition, processing and classification techniques which do not require actual contact with the object or area being observed such as

    • aerial photography;

    • infrared thermometry;

    • passive microwave sensing. (aero and space technologies and systems).

  • In the second part of the course we will present the techniques used to monitor the environment using networks of sensors and the main soft computing techniques to analyze data, to process data fusion and measurements. Let’s begin!

A note on the course material

A note on the course material

  • This course provides a lot of introductive material in order to allow a good comprehension of the Remote Sensing main issues. Those issues can greatly help the reader to properly understand how to use the soft-computing methods in remote sensing.

  • Please note that not all the material non strictly related to soft-computing is required to the course. Reading the material please keep in mind that issue!

Introduction to remote sensing

Introduction to remote sensing

  • Our goal is to study the basics of the remote sensing for environmental applications, in particular

    • “What is remote sensing?”;

    • Electromagnetic radiation;

    • Interaction of radiation with the atmosphere;

    • Interaction of radiation with targets;

    • Passive and active sensing;

    • Basic characteristics of the remote sensing image.

  • Please read carefully the tutorial L1_IntroductionToRemoteSensing.pdf(*) linked in the course page.

  • The file contains a final quiz to test your improvements.
