Offered topics for master theses

  • Comparison of the classification accuracy of multispectral and hyperspectral data from UAV using various classifiers in the Krkonoše Mts. tundra (3 types of communities – meadow, wetland, shrub).
  • Evaluation of the influence of the length and density of the time series remote sensing data (from UAV and satellite) on the accuracy of the classification of optical data from UAV and PlanetScope satellite data in the Krkonoše Mts. tundra.
  • Evaluation of the amount and distribution of training and validation data on the accuracy of classification (on the example of vegetation in the Krkonoše Mts. tundra)
  • Use of selected machine learning methods (decision trees, SVM) for the classification of heterogeneous vegetation communities (case study: tundra of the Krkonoše Mts.)
