USE OF OPENLY AVAILABLE SATELLITE IMAGES FOR REMOTE SENSING EDUCATION
C.-K. Wang Department of Geomatics, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, 701, Taiwan
Keywords: Remote Sensing, Remote Sensing Education, Openly Available Satellite Imagery Abstract. With the advent of Google Earth, Google Maps, and Microsoft Bing Maps, high resolution satellite imagery are becoming more easily accessible than ever. It have been the case that the college students may already have wealth experiences with the high resolution satellite imagery by using these software and web services prior to any formal remote sensing education. It is obvious that the remote sensing education should be adjusted to the fact that the audience are already the customers of remote sensing products (through the use of the above mentioned services). This paper reports the use of openly available satellite imagery in an introductory-level remote sensing course in the Department of Geomatics of National Cheng Kung University as a term project. From the experience learned from the fall of 2009 and 2010, it shows that this term project has effectively aroused the students' enthusiastic toward Remote Sensing.
