Project
Project of the European Facility For Airborne Research (EUFAR) Transnational Access (TA). The objective of the project was to analyse the environment of the Polish Karkonosze National Park and Czech Krkonoše National Park (UNESCO M&B Reserve). The APEX hyperspectral airborne images were acquired by the DLR Braunschweig (Germany) and VITO (Belgium). Parallel to the airborne campaign, field measurements by teams of the Charles University in Prague and University of Warsaw were conducted. As an outcome of the project new maps and analyses of vegetation, rocks were acquired. The project started in March 2012.
