Introduction to Remote Sensing with R

October 26, 2022 @ 17:30 - 20:30


Do you want to learn how you could use R to create a reproducible remote sensing workflow and analysis? This you your workshop. Please make sure you meet the prerequisites.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to

  • search and download satellite images with R (e.g. Landsat8 and Sentinel)
  • work with satellite imagery in memory or when it is too big for memory
  • to create spectral indices (e.g. NDVI) and spectral profiles
  • to classify a satellite image

Pre-requisites? Basic understanding of remote sensing as can be gained, e.g. from GEOG308; good understanding of base R, e.g. from “R summer camp”.

If you want to be able to download images during the workshop you need to get your own accounts at USGS’s EROS and/or at ESA’s SciHub.

This workshop will be hosted in person in BH511 and takes about 2.5 hours. Registration is open until noon on the day of the workshop. The instructor will be Tim Elrick.
