Research interests

Interests of Tatjana Veljanovski are focused on data pre-processing, interpretation and applications of remote sensing data. She performs research in the field of geometric and radiometric (atmospheric and topographic) corrections of satellite imagery and land cover, land use analysis (object recognition, classification and change detection). Particular attention is devoted to the study of techniques and procedures in remote sensing, allowing for more complex analysis and modelling in the study of (historical) development of the landscape, the Earth's surface. She used remote sensing techniques in the detection and monitoring of natural disasters, the analysis of changes in the urban and natural areas as well as mapping and analysis of the slums. She participates in several national and international projects in the field of remote sensing and GIS.

Curriculum Vitae

Tatjana Veljanovski graduated in geodesy – spatial studies (1999) and she obtained her Ph.D. in remote sensing at the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering, University of Ljubljana (2007). From 1999 she works as researcher at IAPS ZRC SAZU and during 2010-2013 also at the Centre of Excellence Space-SI.
