Remote sensing research, focusing on forestry applications of aerial photography, began at the University of Minnesota in 1952. Twenty years later, the Remote Sensing Laboratory was established in the College of Natural Resources. Today, the RSGL focuses primarily on computer-aided analysis of digital multispectral satellite data and GIS. The graduate programs at the University of Minnesota, with students with interest in remote sensing and geospatial analysis and working with RSL faculty, include the Master of Geographic Information Science (MGIS), Land and Atmospheric Science, Water Resource Science, and Ecology and Evolutionary Behavior.
