Pale Dot provides consulting and training services, principally within the fields of remote sensing and image processing
Senior consultant Johnnie Shannon has spent over twenty years within the remote sensing and GIS industry working for NRSC / Infoterra / Astrium Geo and Sterling Geo. He is highly experienced in satellite image processing and has delivered and developed numerous training courses on this subject.
Johnnie started his image processing career back in the day of the command line interface of ERDAS 7.5. In the early years he undertook numerous satellite image processing projects, generally utilising either ERDAS IMAGINE or ER Mapper, but also using PCI Geomatica and ENVI when appropriate. More recently he was Technical Support Manager for the ERDAS distributorship in the UK. He has a deep understanding of remote sensing and image processing, and is skilled in the utilisation of ERDAS IMAGINE and ER Mapper.
Johnnie has provided numerous training courses to a variety of customers both in the UK and overseas. After only a year within the industry he supplied nine weeks training and consultancy in ERDAS IMAGINE to the Survey Department in Brunei. As part of the ERDAS distributorship he supplied standard ERDAS courses, but also developed a series of standard and bespoke training courses that were more suited to his customers’ requirements. He continues in this tradition of addressing the exact needs of his clients in his current training programme.
