MSc Maciej Bartold

Since October 2014 MSc Maciej Bartold is carrying out four-year doctoral (PhD) studies conducted at Department of Geoinformatics, Cartography and Remote Sensing , Faculty of Geography and Regional Studies, University of Warsaw.

MSc Maciej Bartold graduated from the University of Warsaw, Department of Geography and Regional Studies in 2008. For his MSc. degree he was studying forest classification using hyperspectral image Hyperion (EO-1). In 2009, he completed post-graduate study in the Military University of Technology about GIS, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing and its implementation in national economy, country defence and environment protection.

His researches are focused on analyzing vegetation conditions and monitoring natural disasters applying time-series of satellite images derived from Terra.MODIS, SPOT Vegetation and Proba-V missions. Mr Bartold is also involved in field data collection in order to analyze vegetation conditions over wetlands and agricultural areas in Poland. He is an author and co-author of publications in international and Polish journals and peer reviewed conference proceedings.
