Multisensor platform – QUERCUS.6
The QUERCUS.6, multispectral camera, was created for HESOFF purpose at the Institute of Aviation, Remote Sensing Division. Camera operates within 6 spectral channels, records data in the wavelength range 460 – 950 nm and enables imaging in selected ranges of electromagnetic radiation. QUERCUS.6 is equipped with an on-board computer with software for calculating remote sensing indicators, GPS and solar sensor. Images with various (colored / spectral) compositions obtained from the camera can be used to monitor: air and water pollution, crops, biodiversity, as well as in archeology and spatial planning.

Products obtained by data processing which was acquired during photogrammetric flights
2014: orthophotomaps composed from aerial images acquired over research areas
2015: elevation models created from aerial photographs acquired over the surveyed areas
On the two following models, heights of coniferous trees was correctly presented, while in the case of deciduous trees, as a result of the lack of foliage, the aerial photos showed mainly the area under them. Consequently, in the case of the elevation model acquired from the correlation of images, areas covered with deciduous trees represent terrain height.
Elevation models have been used in further research, among others as reference data for indicators determining the health of trees.
2016: orthophotomaps of research areas composed from images acquired in May.
2017: orthophotomaps of research areas composed from images acquired in June.
2018: raw products and orthophotomap acquired during the flights in the growing season 2018.
