On completion of this topic you should better understand the spatial character of remotely sensed data. Your main task is to identify methods to enhance and extract information contained in the spatial domain of digital imagery and asses how they can be implemented in a range of remote sensing applications.

As you work through the material you should gain the knowledge to enable you to:

  • Determine the most appropriate sensor spatial resolution for a particular remote sensing application
  • Select image processing methods that are most suitable for a particular application in order to maximise spatial information and be able to fully implement them using appropriate software
  • Implement data fusion methods to combine the spatial and spectral properties of different sensors.
