Best Universities for Remote Sensing in Asia

Below is a list of best universities in Asia ranked based on their research performance in Remote Sensing. A graph of 353M citations received by 25.6M academic papers made by 825 universities in Asia was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with the university website.
