Satellite Remote Sensing for Beginners


Satellite Remote Sensing for Beginners, Get started to learn remote sensing with various earth observation satellite data!

Course Description

This course provides an introduction of satellite remote sensing for beginners.

The course contains 5 lectures with various sample images taken by earth observation satellites.

  1. What is Remote Sensing
  2. Satellite
  3. Orbit
  4. Utilization
  5. Data Access

Students will learn overview and basic of satellite remote sensing with sample images. The course introduce several satellites carrying sensors to observe the Earth. Students will learn there are two typical types of sensors – i.e. optical and radar – and its advantages and disadvantages. There are also two typical satellite orbits which are geostationary orbit and polar orbit. Satellite data users will select adequate satellites for their purposes.

Students will also learn how the satellite data has being utilized for various applications such as agriculture, forest monitoring, disaster reduction etc. The course also provides how to search and obtain the observation data taken by one of the most famous earth observation satellite – Landsat.

This course is the first step to learn remote sensing. For the next step, the Remote Sensing Technology Center of Japan (RESTEC) provides the following online interactive training with hands-on exercise.

  1. Basic Remote Sensing Course (2 days)
