Analysis of Oblique Aerial Images for Land Cover and Point Cloud Classification in an Urban Environment

In addition to aerial imagery, point clouds are important remote sensing data in urban environment studies. It is essential to extract semantic information from both images and point clouds for such purposes; thus, this study aims to automatically clas…

Wall Clutter Mitigation Using Discrete Prolate Spheroidal Sequences for Sparse Reconstruction of Indoor Stationary Scenes

Detection and localization of stationary targets behind walls is primarily challenged by the presence of the overwhelming electromagnetic signature of the front wall in the radar returns. In this paper, we use the discrete prolate spheroidal sequences …

Multiple Feature Learning for Hyperspectral Image Classification

Hyperspectral image classification has been an active topic of research in recent years. In the past, many different types of features have been extracted (using both linear and nonlinear strategies) for classification problems. On the one hand, some a…

Polarimetric Incoherent Target Decomposition by Means of Independent Component Analysis

This paper presents an alternative approach for polarimetric incoherent target decomposition (ICTD) dedicated to the analysis of very high-resolution polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (POLSAR) images. Given the non-Gaussian nature of the heterogene…

Arctic Sea Ice Freeboard Retrieval With Waveform Characteristics for NASA’s Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) and Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS)

Data from an IceBridge Arctic campaign on April 20, 2010 with the Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) and the Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS) in operation on the same airplane were used in this study. ATM and LVIS lidar waveforms were fitted with…

Supervised Spectral–Spatial Hyperspectral Image Classification With Weighted Markov Random Fields

This paper presents a new approach for hyperspectral image classification exploiting spectral–spatial information. Under the maximum a posteriori framework, we propose a supervised classification model which includes a spectral data fidelity ter…

Automated Generation of a Digital Elevation Model Over Steep Terrain in Antarctica From High-Resolution Satellite Imagery

The automated generation of a digital elevation model over the Antarctic using stereo matching high-resolution satellite images is a challenging task. Moreover, the homogeneous radiometry in the icy environment and the strong geometric dissimilarity be…

A Model for the Complex Dielectric Constant of Supercooled Liquid Water at Microwave Frequencies

Measurements of the complex dielectric constant, or relative permittivity, spectrum of liquid water are modeled for frequencies up to 1 THz and temperatures up to 60 $^{circ}hbox{C}$ by a combination of two components: a Debye function, which characte…
