Remote Sensing: Image Acquisition, Analysis and Applications

Oct 29, 2020

This is an on-line course in remote sensing, developed as an educational initiative of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote and Remote Sensing Society.

This course covers the fundamental nature of remote sensing, and the platforms and sensor types used. It also provides an in-depth treatment of the computational algorithms employed in image understanding, ranging from the earliest historically important techniques to more recent approaches based on deep learning. The course material is extensively illustrated by examples and commentary on how the technology is applied in practice.

The instructor for the course is Emeritus Professor John Richards of the Australian National University, University of New South Wales.

The course is being hosted on Coursera. To gain access participants set up an account on the Coursera platform ( and then search for: “Remote Sensing Image acquisition, Analysis and Applications”.
