Remote Sensing Tutorial offered by NASA
This Remote Sensing Tutorial will help you understand what is measured by sensors on spacecraft looking toward the Earth and at other planets, other galaxies and, going back in time, the cosmos.
Remote Sensing and Radiation Principles from the National Open University of Nigeria
Principles of Remote Sensing
This tutorial is part of the “Space View of Asia, 2nd Edition” CD-ROM produced by the Centre for Remote Imaging, Sensing and Processing (CRISP) at the National University of Singapore.
Remote Sensing Tutorial In Spanish, French, Portuguese, and English
This Tutorial for Education and Training is one of the strategic lines of action that the project TELECAN wants to make available to all organizations, businesses or home users interested in remote sensing in order to encourage its use to improve the quality and competitiveness of products generated and to promote consolidation or creation of technology-based companies.
The tutorial is available in 4 languages:
“Models and Information Formation in Multichannel Radar remote Sensing Imagery,” Carlos López-Martínez (IGARSS 2007)
“Introduction to LIDAR Remote Sensing Systems,” Francesc Rocadenbosch (IGARSS 2007)
US Forest Service: Remote Sensing Applications Center
A series of tutorials on using Lidar with forestry applications.
Introduction to Lidar Remote Sensing, Hongxing Liu
Airborne Altimetric Lidar, Bharat Lohani
“Microwave Aperture Synthesis Radiometers for Earth Observation: Application to the SMOS Mission,” Adriano Camps (IGARSS 2006)
Introduction to Radiometry, Graham Brooker, The University of Sydney
Introduction to Hyperspectral Imaging from Microimages
Introduction to Hyperspectral Imaging Technology from Excelis
Hyperspectral Tutorials on a variety of topics from Richard Gomez
Interpreting Optical Remote Sensing Images from the Singapore Center for Remote Imaging, Sensing, and Processing
Data Fusion Tutorial (In Spanish)
This tutorial is a broad introduction to the topic of Data Fusion, with a few examples from from Paolo Gamba’s experience in urban Remote Sensing. In other words, it explains what “data fusion” is and what levels of data fusion can be applied to remotely sensed data in a rather introductory but comprehensive way. After providing the theoretical principles of data fusion, for each level the tutorial provides a detailed analysis of several real world examples of applications.
A Quick Guide to Open Source Geospatial Tools
A quick search of the web garners a massive list of tools that are freely available to you for a wide array of tasks related to geospatial applications. How do you get started? This article introduces a handful of the applications that are available, grouped according to task. These concepts and applications are discussed further in his book Web Mapping Illustrated.
