1. Do you know of any sources of multimedia materials for use on Macintosh
and PC computers and which can be integrated into existing undergraduate
courses of remote sensing, photointerpretation and digital processing of
remotely sensed data?
2. We all see the need for such material for the whole spectrum of classes
we teach in remote sensing. I wish to emphasize the need of hypermedia and
multimedia for teaching image interpretation of aerial photographic and
satellite images. Image interpretation is mostly an art and can get
advantage of the organizational and presentation means offered by
(Example reference: Argialas, D., and O. Mintzer, 1992. The potential of
hypermedia to photointerpretation education and training, In "International
Archives of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing", Vol. XXIX, part B,
Commision VI, pp. 375-381, L. Fritz and J. Lucas Editors, XVII ISPRS
Congress, Washington D.C. August 2-14,
3. There is a call for proposals for Educational Multimedia (see
http://www2.echo.lu) involving the programs telematics applications,
Information Technologies, Socrates, Leonardo, and ten-telcom.
We are seeking cooperation with other coleagues in this or another call for
proposala regarding Educational Multimedia for Remote Sensing.
