Satellites, planes and drones are surveying the earth's surface with increasing frequency and at ever higher resolutions. Remote sensing deals with the processing, evaluation and analysis of the data that is collected, which is available to science and industry in ever larger volumes. Applications include land use analysis, natural hazard management and biodiversity research, urban planning and energy consulting.

This module teaches the physical, theoretical and conceptual fundamentals of remote sensing as well as developing the essential skills of processing remote sensing data and evaluating products using this technology.
