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

Comparison of Differences Between MODIS 250 m and 1 km Cloud Masks

The spatial resolution of remote sensing instruments installed onboard satellites is one of the key factors for accurate estimations of cloud amount. In general terms, the larger the instantaneous field of view (IFOV), the

24th SPIE Remote Sensing Symposium in Warsaw

We cordially invite you to participate in the 2017 SPIE Remote Sensing symposium.  Over the past 23 years SPIE Remote Sensing has become the largest and most prestigious annual international meeting on this subject

Seminar of the Remote Sensing Section

On 14th December 2016 seminary of the Remote Sensing Section, which is part of the Space and Satellite Research Committee, took place. The main subject of the 4th seminar was “Transformation and acquisition of

Although natural values are crucial for most of outdoor activities, they are rarely included into tourism accounts. Balmford et al.1 estimate the global value of tourism in natural protected areas as USD 600 billion
