How do Biosystems Engineers Analyze the World?

Geospatial Technologies in Biosystems

This course dives into subject matter regarding the technology behind Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and remote sensing. Through the exploration of GIS, GPS, and remote sensing, skills in the application of GPS/GIS in the public and private sector are acquired.

Global Positioning System

Signals involved are used to calculate: position, velocity & time.

Geographic Information Systems

Making and storing data: combining maps and data for real-world applications.

Remote Sensing

Collecting data via a device that is not in contact with the subject under analysis.

Data Acquisition

Using satellites, aerial photos, infrared radiation data, and multi-spectral scanners, new information about the world is available for study.
