GST 105 – Introduction to Remote Sensing

These labs are part of the FOSS4G GeoAcademy curriculum.

The files on this page are the ready-to-go labs converted to Microsoft Word format. All lab are stored in zip archives (.zip). Each lab typically includes:

  • Instructions in Microsoft Word format (.docx)
  • Lab data directory.

If you find an issue with a lab, open an issue on GitHub, or email us tracked changes in a Word document.

Note: Due to the automatic conversion of the source documents to Word, instruction numbers may not always be sequential. We are working to fix this in later releases. For now, just renumber in Word.

All of the source materials for the labs are available on GitHub.

Note: Some of these labs use GRASS GIS, a free and open source GIS program.
