<strong>SYLLABUS</strong><strong>GEOGRAPHY</strong> <strong>703</strong> - <strong>ADVANCED</strong> <strong>REMOTE</strong> <strong>SENSING</strong>Spring 2011Time: Wednesdays, 5:00-7:40 p.m. Class reflector: geog-<strong>703</strong>@uwm.eduInstructor: Prof. Mark D. Schwartz Room: SAB 240Office: BOL 490 -- messages may be left in BOL 410 (Geog. Dept.)Office Phone: 229-3740 Messages: 229-4866 (Geog. Dept.)Office Hours: by appointment onlyrdTextbook: Jensen, J. R., Introductory Digital Image Processing, 3 Ed. (2005), Prentice Hall.Readings: Additional reading may be assigned on topical issues.Materials: CD-ROMs, CD-RWs, and USB portable drives for file transportThis course is designed to follow on from basic concepts of digital image analysisaddressed in Geog 403 Remote Sensing: Environmental and Land Use Analysis. Students willdevelop competency in using ERDAS IMAGINE software. Topics will include data import andgeo-linking, image enhancement and georegistration, unsupervised classification, resolutionmerging, supervised classification, hybrid classification, classification of mixed pixels, spatialmodeling, and GIS integration. Understanding of these technical issues and procedures will beinterleaved with practical examples of their application to geographic problems, which studentswill explore through exercises and a final project. Students will choose a topic of interest,formulate and present an outline of their strategy and methodology, and then prepare a writtenfinal report of the project, including an in-class graphically-supported presentation.COURSE POLICIES1. Evaluation: Grades will be assigned on the basis of total points accumulated from generalparticipation and exercises (100 points), the final report (40 points) and presentation (20 points),and a “take-home” final exam (40 points) for a total of 200 points.The percentages necessary to receive certain grades will be no higher than the following:88%--(A-)78%--(B-)2. Notices: Grades, once given are final except in cases of clerical error. Do not use a red pencilor pen to write exam answers. All tests must be taken as scheduled; make-ups are given in caseof documented student illness or other emergency only. It is the responsibility of the student tonotify the instructor when an exam or other course requirement will be missed.
