This subject will show how to use two computer programs (Global Mapper and ENVI) to process satellite images in order to obtain geological and environmental data. The subject is almost entirely practical, and involves processing a variety of images from a particular area, including digital elevation models, Landsat, radiometric and aeromagnetic data, to construct a geological map and geomorphic history. In addition, the use of hyperspectral imagery will be covered.
