What is Remote Sensing?
Remote Sensing provides a new vantage point to marvel, monitor and measure our world. With the advent of Earth Observation and satellite technology, we are now able to view the planet—and our impact upon it—in real-time digital imagery.
These images allow us to observe and quantify objects and patterns found in the earth, atmosphere, ocean and space. This fast-paced science powers the geospatial information revolution, providing the framework for new technologies like Google™ Earth and helping us to better understand things like climate change.
Remote Sensing is used at a much smaller scale, producing non-invasive medical imagery such as X-rays, MRIs and scans. This technology has virtually transformed the study of the internal workings of complex organs like the brain.
As a Remote Sensing student, you will study Geography, Environmental Science and Physics, as well as other topics focused on the field. You will also learn to record and interpret images using highly-specialized instruments, some of which are unique to the Remote Sensing program at the UofL.
The Remote Sensing Group hosts an extensive suite of fully-equipped laboratories, with dedicated research and graduate student areas. These labs include the latest equipment and software, supporting a variety of Earth and Environmental Science studies.
