GIS4035 Photo Interpretation and Remote Sensing, Dr. Brian Fulfrost
Spectral Enhancement and Band Indices
Lab description - For this laboratory exercise, students examined an image of forest surrounding the Olympic Mountains in Washington State. They learned to use the different bands – or layers – of satellite imagery to better study the image. They also learned to calculate an index that will allow them to easily distinguish between vegetation and other features.
Student Learning Outcomes:
- Explore Image Histograms
- Operate the Inquire Cursor
- Interpret histogram data in images
- Utilize the “Help” menu effectively to locate ERDAS functions
- Identify features by interpreting digital data
STUDENT SPOTLIGHT AWARDS
The following student was chosen for their exceptional work on the Spectral Enhancement and Band Indices lab assignment:
What we like: Stuart's maps looks really good and demonstrated effective band combos. We like how the band combinations really made the feature stand out and how Stuart identified the specific feature on the map and included an inset map. He also included a written description of what was being highlighted on each map. Way to go Stuart, keep up the excellent work!
