Remote sensing monitoring and GIS analysis of environmental change in key high mountain regions of Mongolian Altay

APN CRRP project “Climatogenic transformation of the alpine landscapes in Mongolian and Russian Altai”

 

Thematic Workshop:

Remote sensing monitoring and GIS analysis of environmental change in key high mountain regions of Mongolian Altay

Khovd, Mongolia, 15-17 April 2018

 

Background:

This workshop provides participants with an introduction to the principles of geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing, and the application of these techniques to the monitoring of environmental change. The first part of the workshop focuses on GIS, where the structure and format of GIS data, data input and transformation, database compilation, and the use of search criteria and spatial modeling to carry out suitability mapping are examined. In remote sensing, the focus is the capture and processing of satellite images, and how data from various satellite platforms are used in the project. The workshop is strongly computer-based, and participants will gain experience in the use of Microdem/Terrabase  — free GIS and remote sensing software.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of the course participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the principles of remote sensing and digital image processing;
  2. Understand the principles of geographic information systems (GIS);
  3. Gain experience in the applications of remote sensing and GIS to solving problems of environmental sciences.
  4. Gain experience in the use of image processing and GIS software.

Content

  1. Principles of aerial photography and satellite remote sensing
  2. Sensor types and platforms used
  3. Digital image processing
  4. Remote sensing applications in the environmental sciences
  5. Principles of GIS
  6. Data collecting, input, processing and manipulation
