Data collection with the help of remote sensing is significant in the field of informationabout the environment quickly and effectively. In case of the red mud disaster in Ajka, Hungary Oct. 4,2010 our group of researchers carried out an extensive remote sensing data collection with the coordinationof Science Council of the Committee of the Government Coordination Commission, applying the most up-to-date technologies of remote sensing and data processing. In this publicationbesides the main points in planning and executing air shots we also summarize the results of dataprocessing with image analysis during the evaluation of the catastrophe and the compensation period.
