Remote sensing laboratory
Focused on remote sensing data preprocessing and processing. Applications for environment monitoring in the Czech Republic.
Remote sensing laboratory was established on 1.1.2019 as a part of CENIA, Czech environmental information agency restructuralisation. Foundation of the Laboratory was driven by motivation to research interactions among several landscape parts a socioeconomic aspects of human activity based on use of remote sensing methods both on local and global level. CENIA has already used remote sensing methods in a number of previous projects and based on this experience, specialised unit was established to intensify activities in this area.

Dr. Pavel Doubrava
Head of Remote sensing laboratory
"Graduated in the Faculty of Science of the Charles university in Prague, specialized in regional geography. He has more than 30 years of experience in digital remote sensing data procssing focusing on applications in environment, agriculture and forestry. His professional career has started as a researcher within Interkosmos research programme where ha was participating in a development of new methods of digital remote sensing data processing and also worked on a development of sensors for Mir space station. In the early 1990s he was working in Germany in a expert group developing defense applications of remote sensing and later also paticipated in several projects for JPL NASA and other private companies focused on remote sensing development. Apart from that he is an independant consultant in the areas nanosat construction and development of nonconventional space propulsions."
"Master degree in cartography and geionformatics from the Faculty of Science of the Charles University in Prague. More than 15 years of experience with administration, development and design of systems focused mainly on spatial and remote sensing data, their analysis and publication. Experience with preparation, participation and leading of international projects (FP7, H2020, ESA, EEA, Norway grants, World bank) and national projects (Technology agency, EU funds), both of research or technical focus. Preparation and support to EU water directives reporting (WFD, UWWTD, DWD) for the European environment agency. Aquisition of projects carried out for the European commission and other commercial activities having responsibility for their fullfillment. Specialised in web technologies and implementations of open source based solutions."
"Do not fear to follow your ideas."
