Machine vision in remote sensing - a future R & D strategy for Europe
Contains the observations and recommendations from a research and development strategy meeting (held at Leuven, Belgium, in October 1998), devoted to the role that could be played by advanced computer vision algorithms in the analysis of very high resolution optical imagery and multi-view angle imagery, which is becoming available from new satellites. The topics of highest priority to emerge were: detailed mapping and monitoring of vegetation and crop status in forestry and agriculture (precision farming); investigating the interrelation between the three-dimensional nature of the scene and the outlook of the corresponding image texture; creation of 'image maps' by combining high resolution image data and derived information with GIS for land management, urban planning and environmental impact assessment; fusion of information from different sensors, including non-imagery information sources; prediction, detection and monitoring of natural and humanly induced; developing methodologies for monitoring dynamical and temporal processes; two- and three-dimensional visualization and virtual reality applications; position related information extraction through the use of GPS data; presentation of very high resolution image data and derived information through ancillary (mobile) multimedia tools; development of architectures to enable data mining and EO information gathering via Personal Digital Assistants; development of information systems that are capable of intelligently selecting algorithms and combining information from different sources.
