Welcome to the Earth and Planetary Image Facility
The Earth and Planetary Image Facility is a multi-disciplinary laboratory located in the Department of Geography and Environmental Development at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Our research focuses on the use of remote sensing for a variety of applications and on advancing the development of currently available remote sensing methods. The students in the laboratory come from a variety of academic backgrounds, including geography, electro-optics, geology, electrical engineering, bio-medical engineering, computer sciences, and agriculture.
The laboratory is affiliated with NASA’s Regional Planetary Image Facilities program and hosts an active archive of maps and remotely sensed images from the Solar System.
Cutting edge technologies are used and developed in our research program.
