On Monday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 8, 2002, Dr. Mohamed Mohamed presented a workshop on EARTH: Pixoneer Software for Remote Sensing Education.

The purpose of the workshop was to introduce and discuss a remote sensing class curriculum using EARTH software by Pixoneer. This course provides an introduction to electromagnetic spectrum, basic spectral properties of earth surface features, energy interaction with the atmosphere, and spectral response patterns of surface features. It also provides an overview of electro-optical remote sensing systems including airborne and space-borne photographic cameras, multi-spectral, thermal, and hyper-spectral sensors. The emphasis is on digital data formats and characteristics, as well as background on photogrammetric procedures and techniques used in image rectification, image enhancement, image classification, and integration of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS).
Workshop participants came from Elizabeth City State University, Norfolk State University, Virginia State University, University of North Carolina at Pembroke, Boston University, North Carolina A&T University, NOAA-National Weather Service, and NOAA-NESDIS.
