The Montpellier Remote Sensing Centre brings together research groups from different research units and institutes to form a centre for applied research in remote sensing and geographical information.
The activities and units of the Remote Sensing Centre are organised along three main lines:
- Methodological and thematic competencies;
- Research activities via projects, theses and publications;
- High level courses in the field of geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing.
These activities use the output obtained from the processing of data and spatialised information. The general framework is that of a decision-support system for environmental, resource and land use management.
