Remote sensing is one of mapping methods and the geographical information system is an instrument that can generate
information from some spatial and non-spatial data.
The office of the deputy chairman of LAPAN on remote sensing affair activities are research and public services. The
public services can be realized as education and training.
The results are the spreading of information about LAPAN ability in remote sensing data acquisition include its
The National Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) count for one of
the Government non-departemental institute that provide
functional and responsibility to the president of Inonesia.
According to LAPAN's organizational structure the chairman of
LAPAN has 4 deputies; Deputy chairman on Administration,
deputy chairman on space technology affair, deputy chairman
on space media and deputy chairman on remote sensing affair.
In the structure under the deputy of remote sensing affair there
are center of Remote Sensing Technological and the Remote
Sensing Application center and installation.
The activities of remote sensing deputy chairman office have
some special form and characteristics; that are research and
operational. The range of the research spreads from the land to
the sea and the environment, from acquisition, to image
processing research (ground segment). Beside the research
activities there are also some activities on remote sensing
operational; from data reception to added value information
production. And the last but not least some activities on the
commercial users service.
Some forms of users servicing activities among others are the
value added data, and some bilateral cooperation in special
training course on remote sensing. Some institutions had taken
the benefit of the program are The Assessment and
Development of Industry and Technology (BPPIT) of
Department of Defense, The Assessment and Development of
Technology Agency (BPPT), The Central Bureau of Statistics
(BPS), Public Work Department, Local Government of North
Sumatra, Local Government of East Nusatenggara and so forth.
Usually, the research and training course contract are base on
the cooperation experiences have been done for years.
Training course on remote sensing and geographical
information system has been performed through some steps
among others; preparations, execution and evaluation. The three
steps contain experiences of LAPAN in the recent years on
organizing some training course in which some institutions
were involved discussed in this paper.
The first principle components that must be arrange before the
execution of training course are trainers, training course
materials and infrastructural thing. The criterion in trainer
selecting depend on their daily jobs and competency of every
person/researcher, depend on the educational data of engineers
from bachelors to doctoral degree.
From some training courses periods we can see some course
materials given in the course that are :
1. The National Aeronautics And Space Conceptions.
2. Remote Sensing Organizations And Their Activities.
3. The developments of remote sensing and technology and
its application.
4. The advantages and constrains of remote sensing
technology, the data acquisition vehicles and sensors
characteristics, future remote sensing satellites and data
5. Systematic corrections
6. Geometric corrections of image
7. Enhancement and data ingest
8. Classifications
9. Introduction on Radar technology
10. The application of remote sensing data for land, especially
for agriculture
11. Evaluation of Agricultural land use consistency
12. The application of remote sensing data for marine,
especially for fish ponds
13. The application of remote sensing data for environment
14. Introduction to Geographical Information System concept
15. Implementation of Geographical Information System
16. Theoretical and practical interpretation of satellite image
17. The introduction to Image Processing packet
18. Image Analysis practice
19. Case Study
20. Surveying Study
21. Position measurements practice
22. Field surveying
23. Yield revision, report writing and group seminar
24. Report revision and global seminar preparation
Infrastructure for training course completion, number ot
hardware and software requirements, base on the number of
training course participant. The hardware, use in the training
course are PCs, digitizer and scanner. Software used in the
training course are ER-Mapper, Arc View, Arc-Info. All
hardware are owned by LAPAN itself and coordinated by
Image Analysis Unit. For position field surveying according
with area location, we use GPS-Navigation Magellan and
Garmin. The Landsat-TM digital image requirement, provide by
data processing technology operational team.
