Remote Sensing E-learning Community for Digital Image Processing

To facilitate on-line and off-line learning and knowledge sharing, this website is created for sharing computer codes, algorithms, systems, products, and publications that support remote sensing observations and applications, digital image processing, and the extraction of geophysical and biophysical information. It is our hope that through co-learning, sharing, and collaborating, an e-community can be built among researchers, practitioners, teachers, and students, which is named: Remote Sensing E-community for Digital imaGe procESsing (RS-EDGES). By sharing codes, algorithms, products and publications, researchers will disseminate their results more efficiently and learners can save much precious time to avoid re-inventing the existing techniques and models. Furthermore, the collaboration and cooperation among researchers with similar interests can foster future inventions and discoveries.
