Objectives of the course
The course aims at giving a complete treatment about the full remote sensed data elaboration process (capture, evaluation, usage and application). The explained methods refer to passive sensors operating in a frequency range between microwaves and ultraviolet.
Prerequisites
Physics, Basics on electromagnetism.
