Course Brief: This course aims to enable the participants to apply remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) tools and techniques needed in managing and applying in natural resources and forestry. The participants enhance their knowledge of geometric rectification and polynomial rectification, mapping techniques, change detection and GIS. The course is a combination of lectures and laboratory sessions with field visits to selected organizations applying RS and GIS, and towards the end, the participants prepare a report based on lessons learned from the sessions.

The course covers the following modules: fundamentals and remote sensing data, Geo-referencing of satellite data, mapping, change detection, and Geographic Information Systems Development. The course includes study visit program to selected organizations applying Remote Sensing/GIS tools and observe actual projects.
