CE2024 REMOTE SENSING TECHNIQUES AND GIS

How to study this subject

OBJECTIVE:
To introduce the students to the basic concepts and principles of various components of remote
sensing. To provide an exposure to GIS and its practical applications in civil engineering.
UNIT I EMR AND ITS INTERACTION WITH ATMOSPHERE & EARTH MATERIAL 9
Definition of remote sensing and its components – Electromagnetic spectrum – wavelength
regions important to remote sensing – Wave theory, Particle theory, Stefan-Boltzman and
Wein’s Displacement Law – Atmospheric scattering, absorption – Atmospheric windows –
spectral signature concepts – typical spectral reflective characteristics of water, vegetation and
soil.
UNIT II PLATFORMS AND SENSORS 9
Types of platforms – orbit types, Sun-synchronous and Geosynchronous – Passive and Active
sensors – resolution concept – Pay load description of important Earth Resources and
Meteorological satellites – Airborne and spaceborne TIR and microwave sensors.
UNIT III IMAGE INTERPRETATION AND ANALYSIS 9
Types of Data Products – types of image interpretation – basic elements of image interpretation
- visual interpretation keys – Digital Image Processing – Pre-processing – image enhancement
techniques – multispectral image classification – Supervised and unsupervised.
UNIT IV GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEM 9
Introduction – Maps – Definitions – Map projections – types of map projections – map analysis –
GIS definition – basic components of GIS – standard GIS softwares – Data type – Spatial and
non-spatial (attribute) data – measurement scales – Data Base Management Systems (DBMS).69
UNIT V DATA ENTRY, STORAGE AND ANALYSIS 9
Data models – vector and raster data – data compression – data input by digitization and
scanning – attribute data analysis – integrated data analysis – Modeling in GIS Highway
alignment studies – Land Information System.
