Title: Ecoroofs: Geospatial Decision Making-- Remote Sensing Lesson
Url: http://gistr3.delmar.edu/igett/LU_Song.html
Publisher: Integrated Geospatial Education and Technology Training Project (iGETT)
Description: This lesson examines ecoroof development in the context of remote sensing. The learning unit poses the question: "Can arguments for
ecoroof development in a historically agricultural area be supported by calculating changes in urban
and non-urban land cover over time?" Students will be introduced to pixel identification, color bands and basic image processing using ENVI; they will also use ArcMap to calculate percentages of urban and non-urban land cover.

A learning unit summary, instructor and student guides, supporting documents and data files are included. A quick, free login is required to view or download the materials.
