Project Data: Be sure to have the rights to all data. The remote-sensing data available should not drive your research question. Rather, first identify the problem and the relevant variables. Then conceptualize the dataprocessing steps required to achieve the desired solution. The exact study area used for this project may very well not be as important as the problem that you are trying to solve. That is, you will want to ensure that the appropriate remote-sensing data sets for your application type are available, with an acceptable level of quality. Publication: Please consider submitting your project paper to one of the listed conferences (or select your own conference).
