Remote sensing and data analysis for geoscience research
Nowadays remote sensing and high-performance computing provide an opportunity to extract valuable information about landscape and terrain objects. The core element of our research is satellite imagery analysis. The first project is aimed to develop an approach for deforestation monitoring. We analyse how users and experts understand forest reduction using crowdsourcing campaign data and describe this process with remote sensing survey. In our second project the effort is undertaken to examine satellite images in various spectra in order to detect oil palm plantations worldwide. Our approach requires high-performance computations and machine learning techniques. In this case, we use cloud based Geographic Information System (GIS) platform and have a strong ability to power the study with Computer Vision methods of image data analysis.
