It also covers the practical aspects of basic satellite remote sensing and image interpretation. The knowledge and practical skills gained from these data capture technologies will be extended by hands-on exercises on attribute database management (creating, editing and expanding attribute tables) and pre-processing operations (data import and export, digitising and data editing, coordinate and projection transformation, and raster-vector-raster conversions).
