For the last 9 years I have been giving a lecture on GIS and Remote Sensing for environmental studies at the Centre for Postgraduate Studies on Environmental Management (CIPSEM) at TU-Dresden. This is a training in fundamentals of GIS and Remote Sensing where participants are expected to develop their spatial skills in image processing and vector geoprocessing. I focus on conceptual implications and practical applications of this powerful tools, with the objective to allow students to develop their own spatial data set, from the scratch, once back in their respective countries.
Like other years, I fully enjoyed sharing time, experience and knowledge with participants coming from 21 different and distant countries. Thank you very much to all of them for making the lecturing time so enlighten for all of us!
