Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The objective is to develop student’s knowledge of the branch of remote sensing including advanced methods of image processing, image segmentation, object-oriented classification, using uncertainty for classification, using machine-learning for classification, image spectroscopy, radar systems and lidars.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Other activities


The course extends knowledge of remote sensing. It is focused on radiometric and atmospherical corrections, advanced methods of image filtration and utilization of derived indicators such as local textural measures, image segmentation methods, Fourier transformation, Hough transformation, advanced methods of clasification suitable for contemporary data with high resolution (object-oriented and neural clasifications, using SVM), image spectroscopy, radar systems, and lidar.
