Course Description

This course was created at the request of several of our users.

We made a survey, asking our followers which courses they would really love to see and this came at the top of our list.

The course presents the basics of using tools for Remote Sensing in ArcGIS. Even if it shows the basics, you can for sure find any information that you are looking for and most of the tools present in the best GIS software. 

ArcGIS has been a leading GIS software on the global market, that is constantly evolving. Taking this course now means you can be ahead of other GIS and remote sensing professionals.

We consider the course to have 10 lessons per module. Each module presents a particular Remote Sensing application. 

The first module has lessons on downloading satellite images, georeferencing them, making spatial analysis by using geoprocessing and raster tools, classification and statistics functions, creating charts and using some hydrology tools for Watershed Analysis.

We constantly try to expand the course with more modules.
