RS7005 GEOSPATIAL APPLICATIONS FOR AGRICULTURE AND FORESTRY Syllabus | Anna University M.Tech Remote Sensing Second Semester Syllabus Regulation 2013. Below is the Anna University 2013 Regulation Syllabus for 2nd Semester for M.Tech Remotes Sensing, Textbooks, Reference books, Exam portions, Question Bank, Previous year question papers, Model question papers, Class notes, Important 2 marks, 8 marks, 16 marks topics.
It is applicable for all students admitted in the Academic year 2013-2014 onwards for all its Affiliated institutions in Tamil Nadu.



 The content of this course enable the students to understand the application potentialities of remote sensing data separately and in combination with GIS techniques for Agriculture and Forestry.

Spectral properties of crops in optical & TIR region, Microwave backscattering behavior of crop canopy – crops identification and crop inventory – crop acreage estimation – vegetation indices and biophysical model – Yield modeling – crop condition assessment – command area monitoring and management – Microwave RS for crop inventory – Case studies 
UNIT II SOIL MAPPING 9 Soil classifications – Soil survey, Types and methods – Hydrological Soil grouping - Factors influencing soil reflectance properties – Characteristics of saline & alkaline Soils –principle component analysis and orthogonal rotation transformation - Soil mapping - watershed management - Problem soil identification – land evaluation – Case studies.

UNIT III DAMAGE ASSESSMENT 9 Detection of pest & diseases – Flood mapping and Assessments of crop loss – drought assessment – Land degradation – Soil erosion & sedimentation – Soil loss assessment – Soil conservation – Agriculture damage prediction modeling. 

UNIT IV FORESTRY 9 Forest taxonomy – inventory of forest land – forest types and density mapping – Forest stock mapping – factors influencing degradation of forest – Delineation of degraded forest - Forest change detection and monitoring – Forest fire mapping & damage assessment –– biomass estimation - carbon storage – ALTM for Forest studies – urban forestry issues. 

UNIT V CLIMATIC IMPACT OF AGRICULTURE AND FORESTRY 9 Concepts of Integrated surveys– global effects and climatic changes: land degradation and desertification, extreme events, - effect on forest produces health, forest hazards, sustainable forest Management and practice - biodiversity issues – invasive biotics – mitigation and adaptation – RS & GIS for drawing out action plans – watershed approach – landuse planning for sustainable development – precision farming – Case studies. TOTAL: 45 PERIODS
