DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP

The Laboratory of Image Information is part of the Department of Ecology at the Faculty of Biology, that has its laboratories at the CNBCh UW. The Laboratory of Image Information focuses on applying broadly understood imaging methods and remote sensing in biological sciences (including aerial and micro-aerial images from unmanned aerial systems).We are interested in imaging in different ranges of electromagnetic spectrum from UV through visible spectrum, close infrared to thermal infrared under laboratory and environmental conditions. Moreover, we perform imaging at different levels – from macroscopic to aerial, covering areas of many square kilometers (including documentation and classification of plant communities, observation of terrestrial animals and birds, water currents, assessment of structural dampness in places inaccessible from the ground). We prepare orthophotographs and maps of documented habitats.
