This course provides an introduction to the
theory and application of digital image processing techniques to remotely sensed imagery.
Specifically, this course will focus on the methodologies developed to assist in the
thematic extraction of earth resource information using computer-based image processing
systems, earth observational satellite data, and the statistical principles fundamental to the analysis of digital imagery.
Although this is an introductory course, some familiarity with basic statistics ( central
tendency, dispersion, correlation) is desirable.
