Satellite Image Processing
The USM University, in conjunction with the Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG) and the Centre for Technological Innovation in High Performance Computing, will develop the third version of the Satellite Image Processing Course. The course will take place at the USM University between July 09 to 27, 2012, combining laboratory work in the mornings from 0900 to 1300 and topic discussions in the evenings, from 1400 to 1800.
The course is free of charge and is intended for general public related to the academic and scientific fields, interest in learning the use of open source software to develop skills in programming tools to obtain useful results in satellite images. To address this issue, it is helpful to have prior knowledge of programming language C / C + +.
For USM students, the Satellite Image Processing Course can be registered as a free subject, providing 1 credit, having the student meet a minimum attendance of 75% (11 days).
On this occasion, ONRG experts Mr. Bryan Bagnall and Mr. Lucas Keenan will dictate the two weeks course with the main objective to learn the use of the OSSIM open source software, which provides advanced geo-spatial information of remote sensing imagery processing, photogrammetry and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
