ABSTRACT

For Geo-Science education it is very important not only know what it could be looked
like and how it could be used but also can use it to differ one thing from another and etc.
Geo-students should learn our planet by using different methods based on modern
technologies. This paper is devoted to one of them that has high developed last time –
the Earth Remote Sensing. There is successful experience of the Remote Sensing
Centers creation at different Universities of Russia, Kazakhstan, Spain and other
countries. Remote Sensing Center at University is a new opportunity to integrate
theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Such Center is based on personal ground
stations to receive, store and process Earth observation images from space as well as
special software for preliminary processing and in-depth thematic analysis of satellite
imagery.

Keywords: Earth Remote Sensing, practical skills and theoretical knowledge.
