VITO - Remote Sensing - Teledetectie en aardobservatieprocessen
During the last 10 years VITO’s Remote Sensing and Earth Observation department has steadily grown to a 50 personnel strong group with a broad recognition on national, European and global scale. Where the initial focus of TAP was mainly on the development of a processing centre for SPOT VEGETATION data, today they cover a larger domain. TAP intends to further expand the service centre with new highly specialized services and information products, ensuring a better monitoring of environmental processes including vegetation and crop monitoring related parameters. To improve their environmental applications, research is focussed on the development and demonstration of image processing algorithms and associated models using data from both airborne as space borne optical sensors. Their goal is to strengthen the Earth Observation market by developing customer driven services and end-to-end monitoring systems.
