ESA launches the 1st MOOC on Radar Remote Sensing

1

With the advent of drones and drone mapping, remote sensing has now finally entered mainstream usage. A large community of people are already using optical remote sensing to keep track of their farms and many other cool applications. “Echoes from space”, the 1st MOOC on Radar Remote Sensing by the European Space Agency (ESA) promises to provide us with a deeper understanding of a technology that will definitely enter the market sooner than later.

I am one of those passionate "Geo-geeks" and "Geo-people" who is just too excited about everything Geo and Management. Location information and spatial technologies are just too big to take a back seat and watch them revolutionize the world. Always curious and looking for ways to innovate, I guess that it comes naturally by the gene pool I inherited from an engineer Mom and a researcher Dad.
