Computer Vision and Remote Sensing – Terrain Feature Classifications


   Department of Computer Science

  , , Prof X Hong,  Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

The research is mainly concerned with automated image understanding and processing of remotely
sensed data, such as multispectral/hyperspectral images, as well as LIDAR data, which provide height information of terrain. Data sources range from UAV captured data, airborne data, to satellite data. Methodology and algorithms will be developed to classify terrain features in these data, based on advanced techniques of computer vision, image processing, statistical pattern
classification, and machine learning. The application of the research covers land-cover change detection, crop growth monitoring, and may extend to environmental monitoring.

Funding Notes
