Spatial Reader

Email digest of all things spatial, remote sensing, and GIS

I’ve been putting together lectures on remote sensing for the fourth Coursera GIS course this week, and apparently it means this newsletter is a little focused on remote sensing and satellite imagery. Did you know that the European Space Agency can detect millimeters of subsidence in land, from space, using radar? That’s pretty amazing to think about, not just from an accuracy standpoint, but the idea of space-based radar, which isn’t new, is super interesting. Still, we have a few other things this week, so hopefully you won’t be bored. If you’re in the United States, have a great holiday weekend and be safe! See you next week.
