Environmental Management and Earth Observation

The course is aimed at geography and science graduates, industrial practitioners, military and government personnel. Data collection and integration are fundamental to environmental management, and technological advances enable us to gather an increasing amount of information from terrestrial measurements, airborne sensors and satellite-based systems. Some techniques enable continuous monitoring and some allow rapid processing from regular data gathering campaigns. Underpinning all of this is the need for an understanding of co-ordinate systems, positioning techniques and geographical information systems.
