TITLE:On remote sensing image spatial resolution: how to achieve an adaptive solution?
LOCATION:Science building second floor
TIME:10:00, 11/12/2015


    A camera or a hyperspectral imager is designed with a specified spatial resolution. It is often limited, especially for hyperspectral case, where spectral measurements are the priority. The low spatial resolution leads to a large number of mixed pixels on an image, which generates high uncertainty in hard classification and inaccurate land cover monitoring in remote sensing applications. The study of spatial-resolution improvement via image processing techniques, including superresolution reconstruction and spectral unmixing, has been conducted actively in remote sensing data analysis, which offers an effective means to overcome the hardware limitation. 
    On the other hand, a given resolution, which is low for one application, can be high for another application. The high spatial resolution increases intra class variability and makes object recognition difficult. To address these problems, superpixel based image classification techniques have been developed in recent years. 
    In this talk, the concept of pixel, subpixel and superpixel will be introduced. Subpixel and superpixel based image classification techniques will be overviewed and discussed.
