The Remote Sensing Center at NPS is involved in a number of cutting-edge projects. Students have the opportunity to work with key researchers in the field of remote sensing, both at NPS and at collaborating institutions. Our center incorporates hardware and software technologies that are commonly used in the field of remote sensing, and urges students and researchers to become familiar with these in both lab and field settings.
