ATI Introduces Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging Techical White Papers by Dr. Richard Gomez

Dr. Gomez is the presenter of ATI’s Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging course scheduled to be presented on March 9-11, 2010 in Beltsville, MD.

This three-day class is designed for engineers, scientists and other remote sensing professionals who wish to become familiar with multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing technology. Students in this course will learn the basic physics of spectroscopy, the types of spectral sensors currently used by government and industry, and the types of data processing used for various applications. Lectures will beenhanced by computer demonstrations. After taking this course, students should be able to communicate and work productively with other professionals in this field. Each student will receive a complete set of notes and the textbook, Remote Sensing: The Image Chain Approach.
