Abstract [en]

The interview treats Leif Leif Wastenson’s e xp er ie n c e s f r om workingwith research on remote sensing from the late 1960s until late 1990s. Wastenson describes how the Department of Physical Geography at Stockholm University were one of the pioneers in mapping land forms, and later land uses, using remote sensing techniques. Wastenson had been able to conduct some of this work during his military service and would also go on to produce educational material as part of promoting geography in Swedish schools. During the 1970s, Wastenson became increasingly involved in aerial photography as a means to conduct remote sensing research, which led to the CORINE-project during the 1980s and the “Sweden’s National Atlas”during the 1990s. Wastenson was part of building up a large research group at the Department of Physical Geography, as well as a national communityof remote sensing researchers. One of the major national collaborations was RESE during the 1990s. Wastenson collaborated with several developers of remote sensing, most importantly the Swedish Land Survey, the Swedish Research Institute (FOA), and the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC). Of these, it was primarily the SSC that sought to promote satellite remote sensing as a means to a host of applications. Wastenson and his colleagues conducted several evaluations to verify the validity of different types of remote sensing. Wastenson also noted that the Swedish Land Survey could have played a larger role than it did indeveloping remote sensing.
