Introduction to land cover mapping with Landsat (GIS203)

Half-day workshop


Menzies Flex Lab, Level 3, Building 2 ANU


Tuesday, 17 July, 2018 - 13:00 to 17:00

Have you ever wanted to be able to map vegetation, buildings, or land cover in your study site?

In this hands-on workshop you will use ArcGIS to create a land cover map from freely available remotely-sensed imagery. You will learn techniques for identifying land cover types from aerial imagery and use this information to classify Landsat imagery into different land cover types. You will also be introduced to a number of tips you can use to refine your outputs.

This course is only available to CAP academic and professional staff and PhD students. 

When: 1 – 5pm, 17 July

Where: Menzies Library Flex Lab (Level 3, Building 2)

Registrations via HORUS/ISIS. The course is FREE for CAP staff and PhD Students. However, a no-show fee of $50 per session applies (emergencies excepted). You will need a charge code to register. PhD Students can contact their HDR Administrator for a code. 

Some GIS experience required. Email if you don’t have experience with ArcGIS but are still interested in participating in this course.
