Remote Sensing and Earth Observation

June 2020

Special guests: Andrew Marx, Ph.D., Associate Professor of the Practice Spatial Sciences, Spatial Sciences Institute and Institute for Creative Technologies; Kevin Mercy, Alumnus, GIS Analyst, The Aerospace Corporation

Andrew Marx, Ph.D., provides an in-depth focus on the Graduate Certificate in Remote Sensing and Earth Observation (RSEO). He begins with a discussion on the growing field of remote sensing thanks to the large amount of data being collected from satellites, faster analysis with the help of artificial intelligence and a variety of products available to communicate these findings to organizations. Marx then delves into key aspects of the RSEO program, including instruction from experienced faculty, access to cutting-edge remote sensing software and research opportunities.

Later, M.S. in Geographic Information Science and Technology alumnus Kevin Mercy shares the remote sensing projects he completed during his time at USC and the key aspects of the M.S. in GIST program that have been most helpful to his career. He also provides details about his current role as a GIS analyst, his focus on web server development for GIS systems and the exciting future of the GIS field.
