Sharing and cooperation in geo-information technology
Aziz, T. Lukman

to make use of the existing communication course infrastructure
in several universities for video generation;
to generate educational material in the remote sensing area that
shows the researchers in real work situations
In this project, referring video should be created towards the
foundation of remote sensing, sensor systems and video about
remote sensing applications to natural resources.
EDUCA SeRe IV PROJECT - Generation of Slide and
Transparencies Sets for the Teaching of Remote sensing
This module aims to create slides and transparencies sets,
approaching the foundations and the applications of remote
sensing in the natural resource area, to be used as educational
material in the primary, secondary and tertiary remote sensing
to generated slides and transparencies sets on remote sensing
foundations to be used as educational material;
to generate slides and transparencies sets about remote sensing
applications to be used as educational material;
to make available this type of educational material, at a low
cost, in such a way that the teaching institutions can form a
collection of didactic material;
The themes to be approached by these slides and transparencies
sets are :
introduction to remote sensing;
foundations of remote sensing;
sensor systems;
spectral behavior of natural targets;
digital images processing;
remote sensing applications to natural resource.
These slides and transparencies sets can be marketed at the cost
of US$ 20,00 each, cost that is not very high and allows that a
teaching institution acquires more than a group or that the
teacher himself forms a private collection.
The EDUCA SeRe PROGRAM will have a 4 year duration, in
such way that it can collect funds, to make partnership and to
motivate professionals and institutions to take part in it. It is
also the necessary time to evaluate the impact provoked on the
formation of new users of remote sensing, with educational
material, with regional languages and examples.
At the end of the EDUCA SeRe PROGRAM it is expected
that :
the primary, secondary and tertiary teaching communities use
this educational material in disciplines that approach remote
sensing, environment, natural; resources, geography, urban
regional planning and cartography;
the universities or even their teachers form their own collection
of didactic notebooks, CD ROM’s videos, slides, poster-images
and transparencies to be widely used in classrooms;
the secondary and tertiary students also acquire this educational
material, mainly the notebooks, CD ROM’s and poster images,
and form their own collection , using them at their schoolwork;
due to the fact that this educational material is generated at a
low cost, facilitating its acquisition on the part of the teachers
and students, to have a larger diffusion of the remote sensing
data among the student community, motivating them to futurely
make use of this technology in their professional life,
the universities or even their teachers form their own poster-
image collection, obtaining like this, a personal atlas or as part
of the schools collection, to be widely used classrooms;
the secondary and tertiary students also acquire these poster-
images and form their own atlas, using them at their
that the atlases formed with the poster-images and the CD
ROM’s can also be used by managers, planners, mayors,
politicians, decision makers, opinion formers, tour agencies, at
their professional activities;
that the generated videos can serve as educational material in
the undergraduate courses in the natural resource areas and to
make learning more interesting;
that the teaching institutions form collections with the generated
slides and transparencies, and that these are widely used by the
teachers in the disciplines that involve natural resource;
that more professionals and teaching institutions are motivated
to generate educational material, at a low cost, for remote
sensing teaching, becoming a regular practice in these
One of the main reasons presented by teaching and research
institutions to not generate educational material is the lack of
funds, this could be solved in the following way :
to form partnerships with the space agencies, that make
available the satellite data, technical texts already ready and
elaborated for other purposes, but that could serve as a
consultation source for the generation of educational material;
elaboration of part of the text or materials that would be used in
the development of the educational material,
with private universities, private consultants, research institutes,
scientific societies, publishers of books and magazines,
journalistic companies, television networks, non governmental
organizations. Each one of these institutions could participate
with a quota in money or in services;
to invite researchers to write the technical texts or part of them;
to use secondary and university level trainees, to help make the
educational material, mainly trainees of the computer science,
pedagogy, arts and natural resource areas;
to motivate master and doctorate students, of the several natural
resource and pedagogic areas to develop projects to elaborate
educational material.
And to remind mainly that:
the largest obstacle for the generation of educational material is
not the lack of money, but basically of professionals interested
in being devoted to this task;
