Learning outcomes This Curricular Unit intends to familiarize students with some of the techniques used in remote sensing, as well as
some of the basic tools and principles of digital mapping, complementing the
acquired in previous CUs.
It is the main objective to provide students with autonomy to deepen the knowledge acquired in the
classes, in order to be able to collect information from remote sensing sources, to
preparation and cartographic presentation.
At the end of the CU, students should have acquired the following skills, as well as the ability to
autonomously to deepen them:
(a) Understand the fundamental concepts and techniques and principles of operation from various sources
of remote sensing data, as well as techniques and forms of production of digital cartography.
(b) Domain of nuclear features in remote sensing.
(c) Domain of forms of production of digital cartography.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The Curricular Unit is taught during the first semester, involving 30 hours of contact with the teacher and 180 hours of autonomous student work (total: 210 hours). The approval to the CU grants the trainee 7.5 ECTS. The classes, of the theoretical typology (T), contemplate the brief theoretical exposition of the programmatic contents, while in the classes of theoretical-practical typology (TP) it is promoted the resolution accompanied by exercises and the discussion and analysis of conceptual questions, serving as the basis for the development of a final practical work of an individual and autonomous nature, aiming at solving an exercise using the tools learned, with the application of much of the theoretical knowledge taught. The evaluation is carried out through supervised work (25%) and an individual and autonomous practical work (75%). The evaluation criteria may be reviewed annually in accordance with the General Knowledge Assessment Rules of UBI.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
