Assessment

 



 

As part of this course, the students develop a research project in remote sensing. The projects include image processing and analysis of airborne or spaceborne images using the software called ENVI (Environment for Visualizing Images). The students have to do an oral presentation and submit a final report.

Final reports of the projects must follow the same format of the papers in the Caribbean Journal of Science. Please go to the "
Instructions to Authors" for more details about the format.
