ACCESS-4FI – Automated Crop Classification and yield Estimation online ServiceS for Food Industry. This project addresses the challenge of quantification and annual monitoring of the agricultural production, as seen from the perspective of different

BAMS-Mazovia

The main goal of the BAMS-Mazovia (Build-up Areas Monitoring Service for Mazovia) project is to develop a service platform that would provide reliable information on changes occuring within built-up areas. The service will be

This study uses time-series Sentinel-1(S-1) synthetic aperture radar images to evaluate the impact of multi-temporal polarimetric processing on land-cover classification. Various polarimetric processing methods are applied to multi-temporal S-1 data set in order to

Kotarba A.Z., Nowakowski A. (2018), Impact of snow cover on impervious surface detection. International Journal of Remote Sensing, doi:10.1080/01431161.2018.1475775

Traditionally, snow cover has been seen as an obstacle to landcover classification and impervious surface detection based on remote sensing. However, snow cover increases the spectral contrast between impermeable surfaces and other land-use types.

Kotarba A.Z., Vertical profile of cloud amount over Poland: variability and uncertainty based on CloudSat-CALIPSO observations. International Journal of Climatology, doi:10.1002/joc.5558

Historically, climatologists have found it difficult to access reliable information on cloud vertical structure. This is becaus e both surface-based observers and imaging/sounding satellite sensors have limited capability to report superposed cloud. How-ever, lidar–radar

Kulczyk S., Woźniak, E., Derek, M. (2018) Landscape, facilities and visitors: An integrated model of recreational ecosystem services, Ecosystem Services, doi: 10.1016/j.ecoser.2018.02.016

Recreation is a complex and important ecosystem service. Therefore, there is a need for approaches that can account for this complexity, and integrate both environmental and socio-economical perspectives. The Recreational Ecosystem Services (RES) model

Woźniak E., Kulczyk S., Derek M. (2018) From intrinsic to service potential: An approach to assess tourism landscape potential, Landscape and Urban Planning, 170, 209-220, doi: 10.1016/j.landurbplan.2017.10.006

Tourism contributes to human well-being and is recognized as a cultural ecosystem service. However, assessments of landscape potential for tourism tend to be very general. Therefore, this study proposes a method that takes into

Analysis of the surface of the solar system bodies with the use of mathematical morphology techniques

Task: Remote Sensing Analysis of Landforms in Isidis Planitia, Mars In 2018, the project’s goal and scope were determined, namely: to develop a semi-automatic algorithm to analyse characteristic landforms in Isidis Planitia on Mars.

Wajer P., Woźniak E., Kofman W., Rybicki M., Lewiński S. (2018) Simulation of SAR images of urban areas by using the ray tracing method with measured values of backscatter coefficients, International Journal of Remote Sensing, 39:9, 2671-2689, doi: 10.1080/01431161.2018.1430396

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,
