Module 5a - Intro to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR)

In Module 5 we learned to calculate the relationship between wavelength and frequency, and to calculate the energy based on the wavelength. The basic principle is that the shorter the wavelength the greater the energy of the particle.
Then we were introduced to ERDAS IMAGINE software, and learned some of its basic utilities, including how to save your work without the software crashing.
Last part of the exercise was to use ERDAS software to select an area of a larger project area, calculate land area of each feature in it, and export it. Calculating land area involved editing the attribute table and adding another column. Then we imported the file into ArcMap, and created a usable map out of it.
