His main research interest are photogrammetric applications in satellite remote sensing. Besides photogrammetry (orthorectification, digital surface model generation) his field of work encompasses also the registration and processing of optical satellite imagery, spatial analysis and processing of laser scanning data (lidar). He has expertise in the automatization of processes involving satellite data pre-processing with innovative models that have been used, among other things, in the STORM processing chain.
He also participates in the management and data processing of the first Slovenian NEMO-HD satellite. He is responsible for the development and implementation of algorithms for radiometric and geometric pre-processing of satellite images and videos.
In addition to basic research, he successfully uses his knowledge of geodesy, in other areas of research. He has participated in five archaeological expeditions in the Mexican state of Campeche, which have been successfully led for years by prof. dr. Ivan Šprajc. In the field work, he is responsible for measurements and mapping of archaeological sites and the generation and 3-dimensional visualizations of terrain data and the architectural heritage of the Mayan civilization.
He is currently working on several projects in the field of remote sensing and GIS, with special emphasis on automatic satellite data registration processes and products generation.
