Welcome to the applied remote sensing and earth observation lab.
Find out more about the work and approach of the IT4Forest team

Land use change detection

Our research focuses on remote sensing of forest environment and we develop cutting-edge techniques for extracting information from data collected by, earth observation satellites, UAVs and terrestrial LASER and photogrammetric scanners to better understand processes in various types of forested land systems.

The it4forest team concentrates on applied interdisciplinary RS research themes topics integrated with bio-geosciences and sustainability.We have large experience and topical expertise applying remote sensing techniques in analyzing and mapping forest land, vegetation attributes and land cover change.
