Topic: Remote Sensing Image Processing for Earth Observation in Time Domain
Speaker: Dr. Xiuping Jia, The University of New South Wales
Time：10:00-11:00AM, January 9
Venue: B228, New Main Building
Multitemporal remote sensing image data sets are becoming widely available due to the improved revisit time, the increased satellite missions in operation, and the easier access in recent years. A time-series image set, for example, generated by a multispectral or hyperspectral sensor, can be formed for a specific geographic location. They have enabled the continuous monitoring the changes of land cover and land use, including vegetative phenology and ecological transition at a large spatial scale. The development of effective approaches for multitemporal data analysis is critical for information retrieval in the time domain. In this talk, Dr. Jia will present the research conducted by her group on multitemporal image processing. She will give an overview of the issues encountered, including image registration, cloud removal, and data fusion. The focus of her talk will be on the opportunities provided by the time-series images for data compression, super resolution reconstruction, and sequential classifier training.
