What Our Students Say

"GEOG 883 was an essential step in my growth as a practitioner in the field of Conservation GIS/RS. The course gave me a sound foundation in OBIA, which produces more accurate results in classifying medium- to high-resolution imagery than traditional pixel-based methods. I'm using it every day to create land use/land coverproducts for use in mapping, analysis and modeling."
