Research interests

Peter Pehani is involved in various phases of satellite data processing, from orthorectification to products development for different fields: disaster management, classification, and visualization. He was integrator of development of the automatic near real-time satellite data processing chain, which was developed by the members of the Department of Remote Sensing under the framework of the Slovenian Centre of Excellence for Space Sciences and Technologies (SPACE-SI)
As a web cartographer he cooperated in web presentation of a summary of archaeological reconnaissance in southeastern Campeche, Mexico, and of publicly accessible Interactive map of Slovenia presenting the ZRC SAZU databases.
