AbstractThe study was performer AT the former Machów sulphur mine – 871.7 ha of dump area reclaimed after open-cast strip mining. The area was characterized by the terrain structure and vegetation cover resulting from the reclamation process. The applied direction of reclamation for this area was agroforestry. The study showed the possibility of using Sentinel-2 satellite images and airborne laser scanning point clouds for the land use and land cover (LULC) mapping, especially forested areas and deriving preise information about of the structure of vegetation in terms to the effect of reclamation. The result of the Sentinel-2 (2016) image classification showed a graphical representation of the LULC classes. Airborne laser scanning (ALS) point clouds were used to obtain precise spatial information (3D) on the terrain and vegetation structure. Detailed vegetation parameters especially height and canopy cover were calculated.
