2- Remote Sensing Professional Certificate.. RSP™

After finishing the Remote Sensing Specialist short courses and having its RSS™ certificate, you are then qualified to proceed forward to the next level which is The Remote Sensing Professional certificate... RSP™. This certificate includes four additional short courses in remote sensing and satellite image processing. These courses use real satellite images and a professional remote sensing software (ERDAS Imagine®) to cover additional topics including the following: [satellite images mosaicing – convolution filters – resolution merge – various enhancement techniques – creating contours – calculating slopes and aspects – shaded relief - 3D viewing for satellite images and data layers – creating flight paths through 3D satellite images – adding 3D models representing buildings, trees, aero-planes, simulating floods and water movement – intervisiblity analysis – adding fog, mist, and others to make realistic 3D effects on satellite images]. Reaching the Remote Sensing Professional level and having the RSP™ certificate qualifies you to progress to the next level which is the Remote Sensing Solution Developer (RSSD™). In the RSSD™ level you will be able to design and develop customized solutions according to the needs of various projects or customers by using advanced Block Programming techniques. You can take the four RSP™ courses -or some of them- for training purposes only without attending their online exams, but in order to get the RSP™ certificate, you should pass the four exams related to the short courses no 10 to 13 -shown below. Additionally, you should perform all practical assignments related to the same courses.

Courses included in this certificate

10 - Satellite Images Subseting and Mosaicking

The study area in which you are interested may span several image files. In this case, it is necessary to combine the images to create one large file. This can be done by using the Mosaicing process which is explained in details in this course. On the other hand, the course also explains the subseting process which is used when an image file contains areas much larger than a particular study area. The subset process reduces the size of the image by cutting the area of interest in a new image file. Details

11 - Satellite Images Enhancement

Enhancement can make important features of raw, remotely sensed data and aerial photographs more interpretable to the human eye. Enhancement techniques are often used for extracting useful information from images. This can be applied and explained through lots of examples explained in this course, including Band Combinations, various types of Brightness and Contrast, Convolution Filters and Resolution Merge. Details

12 - Satellite Images Terrain Analysis

Terrain analysis involves the processing and graphic simulation of elevation and topographic data. Topographic data are essential for studies of trafficability, route design, intervisibility, siting of recreation areas, etc. This short course focuses on terrain analysis operations, including how to display digital elevation models and satellite images in 3D using Image Drape tool, creating shaded relief images, creating contours, studying slopes and aspects. Details

13 - 3D viewing & Simulation For Satellite Images Using Virtual GIS

This course focuses on 3D visualization and analysis of satellite images. By the end of the course you will be able to view multiple data layers in 3D, perform lots of things such as simulated flight path, 3D measurements, Floods and water analysis, intervisibility analysis, adding 3D models representing buildings, trees, aero-planes, and others – adding fog, mist, and others in order to add a realistic effect for satellite images, and finally recording 3D movies.
