Learn some basics of Aerial Imagery Analysis; otherwise known as Remote Sensing. Remote Sensing is "the collection and interpretation of information about the environment and the surface of the earth from a distance, primarily by sensing radiation that is naturally emitted or reflected by the earth's surface or from the atmosphere, or by sensing signals transmitted from a device and reflected back to it. Examples of remote-sensing methods include aerial photography, radar, and satellite imaging" - ESRI, 2016.
This workshop is highly recommended for people in Biology, Aquatic Resources, Agriculture, Wildlife, Geography, Civil Engineering and related disciplines.
Also, since this session is hybrid (in-person and online), participants who join via online (zoom) are expected to have the required software, Erdas Imagine, already installed on their computer prior to attending this workshop. Please contact the workshop instructor for directions on how to obtain a copy of the software.

Learn what is GIS using the ArcGIS Pro application. Participants will also learn how to create a map from scratch. ArcGIS Pro is the latest professional desktop GIS from Esri with the capabilities for viewing, exploring, analyzing, editing, and sharing (via the internet) maps and data.
