Intro to Erdas Imagine & Digital Data 1
In this week’s lab, students learned some calculations of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Students also learned some basic tools of ERDAS Imagine 2011, including how to use and navigate around the Viewer with two different types of satellite images (AVHRR and Landsat TM). The map created in this week’s lab assignment was a subset of an image that was preprocessed in ERDAS Imagine.
Student Learning Outcomes:
- Calculate wavelength, frequency, and energy of EMR
- Locate about and use basic tools in ERDAS Imagine
- Learn about and use the Viewer to view data in ERDAS Imagine
- Subset data in ERDAS Imagine as a preprocessing step for making a map (in ArcGIS)
STUDENT SPOTLIGHT AWARDS
The following students were chosen for their exception work on the Intro to ERDAS Imagine and Digital Data 1 assignment:
What we like: Best overall attempt at displaying classification(s), acreage, and other layers (topo, photo, inset map). Nick thought "out of the box" by creating a map that provides not only context but also provides the viewer the ability to evaluate the classification results using aerial photography and topography. Although the maps are not perfect, his BLOG posting this week demonstrates the energy and enthusiasm he brings to the course.
What we like: Jessica did a good job in presenting her map. The layout is neatly deigned, and her subset is of a good size: zoomed far enough in where the image does not become too pixelated and unidentifiable and is a unique area on the map. Laurie also did a good job including a good reference inset map that gives context to this areas location.
