Course description

In the Master's program Remote Sensing, geoInformation and Visualization, you will gain a deep understanding of remote sensing, both in theory and practice. The course begins with the core principles of recording and processing spatial data, typically gathered through remote sensing methods. You will learn the scientific foundations—physical, chemical, biological, and more—that underpin these processes. Practical skills are a key focus, including modern data processing methods, computer-aided scientific computing, and handling large datasets. The program offers a comprehensive overview of various remote sensing technologies and data processing techniques, teaching you how to apply them to specific scientific and practical problems. Data visualization tools are integral to the course, helping you prepare data for forecasts, scientific communication, and clear presentations for non-specialists and decision-makers. The curriculum fosters a holistic, interdisciplinary approach, encouraging a critical perspective in solving and evaluating geoscientific issues. This program is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in the field, ensuring you can communicate complex data effectively and make informed decisions.
