The Lab: History and Mission


The laboratory was established at the Department of Geography at Tel-Aviv University in 1994 for the purpose of providing an advance scientific environment in studying the Earth from space. The aim was to gather students, university staff, and academic fellow’s world-wide to study the Earth's environmental problems by way of remote sensing means.

The scientific activity in the laboratory is focused on two main issues: Development of a low-cost remote sensing capability (LC.R.S.) for environmental applications and establishing a strong foundation to study the Earth surface using Imaging Spectroscopy (IS) technique (also known as Hyperspectral Imaging).
