3. Research Capacity:

The Environmental Research and Information Processing Department has extensive experience in the field of using Remote Sensing data to serve monitoring and management of natural resources, environmental monitoring, and natural disaster prevention and mitigation. The room is equipped with many devices capable of processing large data such as: UAV drones; geodetic equipment system; Spectra-radiometer;... specialized software for processing Remote Sensing data such as: PCI, ERDAS IMAGINE, ArcGIS, Atcor, SpacEyes 3D,...

The Department's strengths focus on the following research areas:

  • Process multi-temporal Remote Sensing data series automatically, specifically: Develop algorithms to automatically process and classify multi-temporal Remote Sensing data, combining multi-temporal optical and ultra-high frequency data , automatic cloud removal processing on multi-temporal Remote Sensing data sets;
  • Using multi-time Remote Sensing data to build thematic maps, monitor environmental changes, specifically: Build land cover maps, current status of land and forest use, monitor forest and water surface changes ,....
  • Monitoring environmental incidents using satellite and UAV remote sensing data: Monitoring oil spills, water pollution, environmental incidents and natural disasters.
  • Building an environmental database: Combining Remote Sensing data, GIS and online programming tools to build real-time databases to monitor and monitor natural resources and the environment.

4. Postgraduate training:
