With the widespread availability of satellite and aircraft remote sensing data there is need in capacity building in key technology of image processing while avoid purchasing expensive software licenses and use software that run on any standard Personal Computer.

The main objective of the course is to give a compact and practical introduction to the geospatial software platform QGIS for applications using remote sensing data. Coverage of theoretical background of remote sensing is given at the beginning of every computer lab. The combined lecture and lab makes the student familiar with principles of digital image processing and GIS integration, with a focus on applications in forestry and ecology. Practical software training is given expecting students to learn problem solving in the field of geospatial processing. Students are encouraged to use and and install the software on own laptops.
