Remote sensing methods as a part of geophysics have wide applications in different areas of science and practice. In the presented work the team of PhD students and Post-docs aim to collect spectral data for filling in thematic database. The spectral data are result of performed laboratory and terrain spectrometric measurements of the presented in a test area land covers (minerals, rocks, etc.). The result of the project work is collection of remote sensing data and additional information for filling in thematic spectral database in remote sensing monitoring of land covers in Novi Iskar region, Sofia, Bulgaria. Therefore the results will increase efficiency of research investigations in remote sensing monitoring of land covers, synergy between different fields of science and practice, and shared information between researchers.
