ArtISS (Artificial Impervious Surfaces detection with Snow-featured satellite imagery) was a study to improve detection of artificial impervious surfaces using satellite images acquired during winter or night. Artificial impervious surfaces are the example of


The goal of this project is to improve the dwellings detection methodology and to develop an operational stand-alone application in order to provide reliable and consistent results, independent of the imaging sensors type and


In recent years, the frequency of large-scale forest fires has increased significantly owing to a number of factors including the effects of climate change, urbanisation, poor landscape management and malevolent acts. These so-called “Mega-fires”
