Syllabus

Module 1: Remote Sensing, UAV's and Applications
In this module you will learn about what Remote Sensing is and how we can use UAVs as tool for our applications. We will explore the possibilities that airborne technology offers.

Module 2: Planning a mission and acquiring the data

During module 2 we will cover the steps that need to be followed when planning a mission, how to do it, what is needed and what to look out for and how the data is acquired.

Module 3: From acquisition to visualisation
Module 3 focuses on evaluating and processing the data that we have obtained during the mission and how we can process it to deliver a product instead of just a photo gallery! This module will also show some simple examples of data processing techniques used in academia and professional work.

Prerequisite

To successfully finish this course you do not need any prerequisite knowledge. Nonetheless, being a computer software enthusiast will help a lot!

Wageningue University is located in Wageningue, the Netherlands. Its campus is located on the outskirts of the city, which allows it to plan numerous extensions to its premises, all of which are already ultra-modern, due to its scientific nature. The university focuses on life sciences, sociology, business relations and natural resources.

In particular, the University is home to the Alterra Institute for multidisciplinary research into the artificial and man-made environment (rural environment, urban ecology, green spaces, green webs).
