The Remote Sensing Applications in QGIS course, will teach you how to install/setup QGIS and associated plugins. You will learn how to interpret and analyze remotely sensed satellite imagery. I will walk you through each stage using step-by-step lectures and imagery. This course uses datasets based on real-life GIS projects using Open-Source Quantum GIS software. You will gain an understanding what a Geographic Information System is and how Remote Sensing analysis can be leveraged to help solve real world issues.

  • How to download, Install, and configure QGIS, and the plugins required for remote sensing analysis using Microsoft Windows 11/10.
  • How to initiate a new GIS project using the datasets provided.
  • How to enhance and analyze Sentinel 2 imagery of the abandoned Aldermac Mine site, located in the region of Abitibi–Témiscamingue, Quebec.
  • How to use supervised classification machine learning algorithms to detect vegetation changes at the Athabasca oilsands, located around Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, using Sentinel 2 and Digital Surface Model imagery.
  • How to create a Layout and publish their maps to print and digital formats (e.g. Image, Geo-PDF).
  • How to conduct a terrain analysis of Mt. St. Helens and display it as a high-resolution 3D scene.
  • How to analyze LiDAR data to create a 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10m Sea Level Rise Map of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
