What is the Remote Sensing Core Curriculum?

The goal of the Remote Sensing Core Curriculum (RSCC) is to provide the resources to support a state-of-the-practice educational experience. The RSCC is primarily geared towards university level education but some lessons may be suitable for K-12 efforts. See the Lessons section for more information.

The editor of the RSCC is Dr. Joe Knight from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Knight is the director of the UMN Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Lab. His Department of Forestry faculty page is here. Please also visit the Knight Geospatial Science Group website.

The RSCC is composed of submissions from a variety of authors from academia, government, and industry. You are invited to contribute to the RSCC. All contributions made to the program are done so on a volunteer basis; there is no funding for contributing authors. To contribute to the RSCC, contact Dr. Knight at jknight@umn.edu.

The RSCC was developed along the model of the NCGIA GIS Core Curriculum, to “augment the nation’s supply of experts in remote sensing technology by providing a set of readily accessible, adaptable teaching materials.” The RSCC is intended to provide a knowledgebase of theory and techniques to advance the understanding and use of remote sensing and geospatial science.
