Educational Resources

Over the past decade, Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation (formerly Canada Centre for Remote Sensing) has developed several comprehensive sets of remote sensing training materials.  Tutorials are available on a variety of topics including the fundamentals of remote sensing, radar remote sensing, polarimetry and satellite data reception.  These materials are available in English and French.

The material was developed by scientists at Canada Centre for Mapping and Earth Observation (CCMEO), with significant contributions from specialists of different disciplines, and sometimes input from scientists and user agencies in other countries.
