Hyderabad, India: Ahead of the TC VIII Symposium, ISPRS organised pre-symposium tutorial activities during 07-08 December, 2014, covering emerging areas of satellite data applications, on (a) hyper-spectral data analysis and applications, (b) polarimetric SAR data processing and applications and (c) flood monitoring and modeling, .
Around 77 candidates from different academic centres, government agencies and private sectors have participated in these tutorials, besides 18 candidates from CSSTE-AP. The faculty was drawn from Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Space Applications Centre, Advanced Data Processing Research Institute and National Remote Sensing Centre.
As part of the tutorials, hand on activities on open / free and commercial software viz., HEC-GEORAS and HEC-RAS, HEC- GEOHMS, HEC-HMS for flood modeling and PolSARPro, NEST, ASF SARMAP for polarimetric data processing, were provided.
Special training on use of ENVI software for hyper spectral data analysis of the freely available data from HySI, HICO and Hyperion were undertaken. Collection of field spectra using hand held radiometer was also covered as part of the training. The organisers received very good feedback was received from the participants.
