Recent Advances in Remote Sensing Image Classification
This talk will be focused on advanced methodologies for the classification of remote sensing images acquired by new generation satellite sensors for land-cover maps generation. Generation of land-cover maps is crucial for several different applications, e.g., urban area studies, forestry applications and crop monitoring. In this talk, a general overview on the critical problems related to classification of different types of remote sensing images will be initially discussed, and then the recent developments that can overcome the considered problems will be introduced.
Begüm Demir is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento, Italy. She received the B.S. degree in 2005, the M.Sc. degree in 2007, and the Ph.D. degree in 2010, all in Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering from Kocaeli University, Turkey. Her main research interests include image processing and machine learning with applications to remote sensing image analysis. In particular she conducts research on remote sensing single-date and time series image classification, biophysical parameters estimation, content based remote sensing image retrieval and analysis of multitemporal images.
Dr. Begüm Demir is a Scientific Committee member of the SPIE International Conference on Signal and Image Processing for Remote Sensing, and of the International Workshop on the Analysis of Multitemporal Remote Sensing Images. She is the co-chair of Image and Signal Processing for Remote Sensing Workshop organized within the IEEE Conference on Signal Processing and Communications Applications since 2014. From 2010 to 2013, Dr. Begüm Demir has been the organizer for the Special Sessions on Remote Sensing Image Analysis in the IEEE Conference on Signal Processing and Communications Applications.
