The popularity of spatial databases increases since the amount of the spatial data that need to be handled has increased by the use of digital maps, images from satellites, video cameras, medical equipment, sensor networks, etc. Spatial data are difficult to examine and extract interesting knowledge; hence, applications that assist decision-making about spatial data like weather forecasting, traffic supervision, mobile communication, etc. have been introduced. In this thesis, more natural and precise knowledge from spatial data is generated by construction of fuzzy spatial data cube and extraction of fuzzy association rules from it in order to improve decision-making about spatial data. This involves an extensive research about spatial knowledge discovery and how fuzzy logic can be used to develop it. It is stated that incorporating fuzzy logic to spatial data cube construction necessitates a new method for aggregation of fuzzy spatial data. We illustrate how this method also enhances the meaning of fuzzy spatial generalization rules and fuzzy association rules with a case study about weather pattern searching. This study contributes to spatial knowledge discovery by generating more understandable and interesting knowledge from spatial data by extending spatial generalization with fuzzy memberships, extending the spatial aggregation in spatial data cube construction by utilizing weighted measures, and generating fuzzy association rules from the constructed fuzzy spatial data cube.

Object tracking system with seamless object handover between stationary and moving camera modes
Emeksiz, Deniz; Temizel, Alptekin; Department of Information Systems (2012)
As the number of surveillance cameras and mobile platforms with cameras increases, automated detection and tracking of objects on these systems gain importance. There are various tracking methods designed for stationary or moving cameras. For stationary cameras, correspondence based tracking methods along with background subtraction have various advantages such as enabling detection of object entry and exit in a scene. They also provide robust tracking when the camera is static. However, they fail when the ...
A Study for Development of Propagation Model Based on Ray Tracing for Coverage Prediction in Terrestrial Broadcasting Systems
Tabakcioglu, Mehmet Baris; Ozmen, Ahmet; KARA, ALİ (2009-04-11)
In this work, improvements on propagation prediction models based on ray tracing in coverage estimation for digital broadcasting systems are presented. For this purpose, firstly propagation models based on Geometrical Theory of Diffraction (GTD) are discussed, and then an improved model is proposed for prediction of propagation path loss or electric field strength at the receiver. The proposed model incorporates first order expansion of classical GTD in field computation and convex hull for ray tracing. Sim...
Visual detection and tracking of moving objects
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In this study, primary steps of a visual surveillance system are presented: moving object detection and tracking of these moving objects. Background subtraction has been performed to detect the moving objects in the video, which has been taken from a static camera. Four methods, frame differencing, running (moving) average, eigenbackground subtraction and mixture of Gaussians, have been used in the background subtraction process. After background subtraction, using some additional operations, such as morpho...
Comparison of 3D local and global descriptors for similarity retrieval of range data
Bayramoglu, Neslihan; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2016-04-05)
Recent improvements in scanning technologies such as consumer penetration of RGB-D cameras lead obtaining and managing range image databases practical. Hence, the need for describing and indexing such data arises. In this study, we focus on similarity indexing of range data among a database of range objects (range-to-range retrieval) by employing only single view depth information. We utilize feature based approaches both on local and global scales. However, the emphasis is on the local descriptors with the...
