Spectral eLearning

The tremendous benefits and applications of spectral data has resulted in a surge in the deployment of spectral sensors. However, there is still a gap in the number of professionals who can accurately exploit spectral data sets. To address this need, NV5 Geospatial, the definitive leader in spectral analysis, has developed on-demand, interactive spectral eLearning courses to meet the specific needs of analysts. Purchased eLearning courses include access to ENVI in the Cloud and must be completed within 30 days. Purchasing the 10-course eLearning Bundle provides access to ENVI in the Cloud and must be completed within 90 days.

Introduction to Spectral InterpretationSpectral eLearning Course

This course explores discrete regions of the electromagnetic spectrum and their use in conducting spectral analysis. Concepts include spectral sensors and bands, different types of resolution, color composites, and contrast-stretching techniques to enhance image features.

Understanding Image QualitySpectral eLearning Course

This course describes factors that need to be considered to properly assess the quality of remote sensing images. Concepts include sources of error in remote sensing analysis, data-processing levels, and how to mitigate visual flaws in data.

Evaluating Area of Interest CoverageSpectral eLearning Course

This course explores the relationship between data points on the ground and data values in remote sensing images. Concepts include image registration, image-to-map registration, and image mosaic creation. These preprocessing methods are often conducted prior to spectral analysis.

Change Detection and Time Series OverviewSpectral eLearning Course

This course describes methods used in remote sensing to assess changes to the Earth’s landscape over time. Change detection and time-series analysis can provide qualitative and quantitative information about changes that occur with natural events or human activities. Concepts include image differencing, thematic change detection, time series construction, and temporal profiles.

Identifying Data ResourcesSpectral eLearning Course

This course describes several sources of public-domain remote sensing data. Concepts include data portals, different platforms used for Earth observation, and considerations for choosing imagery that best meets a mission objective.

Image Classification OverviewSpectral eLearning Course

This course describes the role of image classification in remote sensing. Concepts include supervised and unsupervised classification, and post-classification accuracy assessment.

Introduction to Hyperspectral AnalysisSpectral eLearning Course

This course provides an introduction to hyperspectral analysis, also called imaging spectroscopy. Hyperspectral images contain at least 40 spectral bands. Concepts include preparing data for hyperspectral analysis, working with spectral libraries, and using target detection to locate selected materials in an image based on their spectral properties.

Understanding Atmospheric EffectsSpectral eLearning Course

This course describes atmospheric processes that affect interpretation of satellite images. Concepts include atmospheric absorption and scattering, digital numbers, calibration to radiance and reflectance, and empirical and model-based atmospheric correction techniques.

Working with Non-Spectral DataSpectral eLearning Course

This course describes how non-spectral data can complement, and potentially improve, spectral analysis. Concepts include gridded and LiDAR elevation data, vector data, and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data.

Spectral Data ApplicationsSpectral eLearning Course

This course explores the applications of spectral data across various industries. It details the interactions between the electromagnetic spectrum and its effects on the Earth’s surface.
