Fig. 2 (color version). Transformation of multispectral image into the CCIm.
(a): Small region from the initial multispectral image. (1) Example of habitat of interest; white lines represent field data about the habitat areas.
(b): CCIm with PIT. Black regions represent excluded irrelevant objects. (1) Common RGB colour for the habitats of interest. (2) Changes in habitats of interest appearing in significantly different RGB colour that can be easily identified.

Initial image of the analyzed region.
