Series: Wednesday 21 June: Comparing Ground to Airborne - Uncertainty


Today, we will focus on the importance of uncertainty when using remote sensing data.

Learning Objectives

After completing these activities, you will be able to:

  • Measure the differences between a metric derived from remote sensing data and the same metric derived from data collected on the ground.

Schedule: Uncertainty in Remote Sensing

All activities are held in the the Classroom unless otherwise noted.
