Utilization of the aerial photos has revealed 26 types of vegetation in reserve “The Vepssky Forest”. Multiple aerial photos satellite images and topographical maps are used to locate temporal changes in XX c. in the territory of Park. The natural state of the Park made them ideal targets to test possibilities to classify landscape types in the east of Leningrad’s region from satellite images in a correct way.
