MSc Adam Waśniewski

Msc Adam Waśniewski graduated geography, specialisation geoinformatics, cartography and remote sensing at Faculty of Geography and Regional Studies, University of Warsaw. The title of his bachelor’s thesis was “Analysis of land cover change and deforestation in the province Ngounie (Gabon) during the period 2003-2013” and master’s thesis “Assassment of Sentinel-2 satellite images for mapping of forest in Gabon”. He graduated in September 2018.

Adam has been working in the Institute of Geodesy and Cartography since June 2018. So far, he has worked on development of Corine Land Cover 2018 database, verification of high resolution layer (HRL) and on historical range of forests. Adam also is a part of team which collect data in a filed, in projects: NCBiR RPA- SA4POL and NCBiR Gyroscan.
