Paper Abstract

In this work a project for the implementation of remote sensing research activities for the acquisition of new knowledge and encouraging the participation of the PhD students of Remote Sensing Systems /RSS/ Department at SRTI-BAS in these activities is presented. The goal of the project is collecting data through spectral measurements for land cover monitoring in a selected test region in Bulgaria and create an open access spectral database. The first task of the work to collecting spectral measurements data is related to the methodology of acquiring in-situ spectral data of land covers in test site. Methodology follows the next steps of 1) collecting samples and additional information; 2) laboratory and field spectrometric measurements; 3) spectral data verification. For the implementation of the steps the test region is selected meeting the following requirements: i) Offers a wide variety of objects from the adopted nomenclature; ii) Has spectral data from Earth Observation device systems; iii) Has the possibility to perform regular measurements with available spectrometric systems. According to the described conditions the test region around the town of Novi Iskar is chosen. In CORINE Land Cover database for this area the presence of 12 classes of land covers has been verified which has to be characterized in detail on the basis of the received data. Each one will be recorded in the created database which is the next project task. This will allow the data received in the experiments to be considered reliable and representative. For monitoring purposes the data could be interpolated for larger areas with similar land covers to trace the dynamics of objects using spectral data.
