Remote Sensing/ GIS
Analysis of earth surface features
and phenomena with data and imagery acquired from
satellite and aircraft sensors using optical and
computer-assisted interpretation techniques.
Geographic Information Systems
Computer-oriented information systems for the capture,
spatial analysis and display of earth resource data
and information to be used in resource management decision-making
Global Navigation Satellite Systems
Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) is the standard generic term
for a satellite navigation system that provide autonomous geospatial
positioning with global coverage. A GNSS allows receivers to determine
their location (longitude, latitude, and ellipsoid height) to within a
few meters using timing signals transmitted by radio from satellites.
The United States created and operates a GNSS called the Global
Positioning System (GPS)
a GPS base station (NRME CORS) in cooperation with the National Geodetic
the Laboratory for Earth Resource Information Sytems,
is the principal center for conducting remote sensing
and GIS research oriented toward natural resources,
ecology, and the environment at The University of Connecticut.
The Department also has the leading Undergraduate and
Graduate earth resources information systems education
and training program in the State.
