This study uses the ray tracing method to simulate synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images of urban areas. The images are constructed for polarisations: horizontal-horizontal (HH) and vertical-vertical (VV), and different types of buildings, vegetation,

All the pre-processing algorithms are being improved constantly. The biggest challenge for the multitemporal analysis is to deal with errors caused directly by the chain of pre-processing of raw Sentinel-2 data to the level

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing technology that uses light in the form of pulses to measure the range between a sensor and the Earth’s surface. Recent increase in availability of

Marta Derek, Edyta Woźniak & Sylwia Kulczyk (2017): Tourism in a naturebased destination: the human versus the ecological perspectives, Tourism Geographies

In the tourism studies literature, wilderness has been addressed from two perspectives. From the first, human, perspective wilderness is a social, subjective construction that exists only in the mind of its users. From the

Malinowski, R., Groom, G.B., Heckrath, G., Do Remote Sensing Mapping Practices Adequately Address Localized Flooding? A Critical Overview, et al. Springer Science Reviews (2017)

Local-scale flooding (LSF) is usually characterized by much less severe damage compared to extreme flood events; however, it does have marked local environmental influence, especially when it is characterized by regular and frequent occurrence

Kotarba, A.Z., Impact of Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) cloud mask interpretation on cloud amount estimation, Journal of Geophysical Research, Volume 120, Issue 17, September 2015 Pages 8971–8986

Cloud masks serve as a basis for estimates of cloud amount, which is an essential parameter for studying the Earth’s radiation budget. The most commonly used cloud mask is a simple thematic classification, which

Impervious surface detection with nighttime photography from the International Space Station

For over two decades nighttime satellite imagery from the Operational Linescan System (OLS) has been used to detect impervious surfaces. However, OLS-based maps suffer from the sensor’s coarse resolution (2.7 km/pixel), overglow, and saturation in

In this study we use ALOS PALSAR satellite data to classify land cover using a decision tree algorithm. We apply polarimetric decomposition methods to coherence and covariance matrices obtained from the data and then

Aleksandrowicz, S.; Wawrzaszek, A.; Drzewiecki, W.; Krupiński, M., Change Detection Using Global and Local Multifractal Description, IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters, Volume: 13, Issue: 8, Aug. 2016

In this letter, we apply the multifractal formalism to land cover change detection on very high spatial resolution data. Specifically, multifractal spectra are determined and, with modifications, are used as an initial general indicator
