Bo is a very involved professor. He genuinely wants the best for his students, and expects a lot. If you put in the work and ask questions when you're struggling, this will be a very rewarding class (it looks good on a resume too). Definitely don't come in expecting a straightforward extension of ENVI/ArcMap based GIS classes you've taken previously; be ready to learn a whole new program.

COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.

This class was a new version of GEOG 174 based on Google Earth Engine, instead of the usual more physics/science based remote sensing taught by Okin. If you're into coding and data analysis, you'll feel right at home here. This class teaches Google Earth Engine and Javascript for remote sensing.

For a first-time class, during a pandemic no less, it turned out pretty good. There were a few hiccups, including a lack of student participation and an extremely rushed first couple weeks (if you don't have coding experience, you might have a hard time. However, Bo is really helpful during office hours if you ask for help). Ultimately, because this course is so packed with material, I learned a lot. But you definitely have to put in the time, especially if you don't know any coding.
