Course description

The three-day SOCET GXP: eXtreme Analysis course offers instruction and hands-on training for SOCET GXP core tools. Learn about the basic SOCET GXP operating environment, typical workflows, terminology, and the fundamental concepts required to create accurate image and map products quickly using geospatially registered data. Students will complete tasks as part of a scenario based approach designed to reinforce key functionality and present real life situations.

After completing the course, students should become familiar with the software interface and menus; recognize frequently used tools; and master the basic navigation required to build finished products – complete with enhancements, graphics, annotations, targets, shapefiles, and other relevant data. Other skills taught include change detection, image comparison, hyper and multispectral image analysis, and generating user defined templates.
