We consider the estimation of the ecological state of the Svityaz Lake using remote sensing data. The areas of four types of water vegetation landscapes for assessment of the Svityaz Lake ecological state were classified. We discuss the problem of the impact of water vegetation landscapes areas changes on the Svityaz Lake ecological state. The regression model of ecological state dependence from recreation load on the lake is established. Thе correlation between the computing simulation and estimated ecological state equals 80 %.
