Recent automated crop mapping via supervised learning-based methods have demonstrated unprecedented improvement over classical techniques. However, most crop mapping studies are limited to same-year crop mapping in which the present year’s labeled data is used to predict the same year’s crop map. Classification accuracies of these methods degrade considerably in cross-year mapping. Cross-year crop mapping is more useful as it allows the prediction of the following years’ crop maps using previously labeled data. We propose Vector Dynamic Time Warping (VDTW), a novel multi-year classification approach based on the warping of angular distances between phenological vectors. The results prove that the proposed VDTW method is robust to temporal and spectral variations compensating for different farming practices, climate and atmospheric effects, and measurement errors between years. We also describe a method for determining the most discriminative time window that allows high classification accuracies with limited data. We carried out tests of our approach with Landsat 8 time-series imagery from years 2013 to 2015 for classification of corn and cotton in the Harran Plain, and corn, cotton, and soybean in the Bismil Plain of Southeastern Turkey. In addition, VDTW was tested with corn and soybean in Kansas, the US for 2017 and 2018 with the Harmonized Landsat Sentinel data. The VDTW method improved the cross-year overall accuracies by 3% with fewer training samples compared to other state-of-the-art approaches including spectral angle mapper (SAM), dynamic time warping (DTW), time-weighted DTW (TWDTW), random forest (RF), support vector machines (SVM) and deep long short-term memory (LSTM).

Concept detection stands as an important problem for efficient indexing and retrieval in large video archives. In this work, the KavTan System, which performs high-level semantic classification in one of the largest TV archives of Turkey, is presented. In this system, concept detection is performed using generalized visual and audio concept detection modules that are supported by video text detection, audio keyword spotting and specialized audio-visual semantic detection components. The performance of the p...
Multi target tracking with acoustic power measurements using emitted power density
Orguner, Umut (null; 2010-07-29)
This paper presents a method to achieve multi target tracking using acoustic power measurements obtained from an acoustic sensor network. We first present a novel concept called emitted power density (EPD) which is an aggregate information state that holds the emitted power distribution of all targets in the scene over the target state space. It is possible to find prediction and measurement update formulas for an EPD which is conceptually similar to a probability hypothesis density (PHD). We propose a Gaus...
Multiple Description Coding of 3D Dynamic Meshes Based on Temporal Subsampling
Bici, M. Oguz; Akar, Gözde (2010-01-21)
In this paper, we propose a Multiple Description Coding (MDC) method for reliable transmission of compressed time consistent 3D dynamic meshes. It trades off reconstruction quality for error resilience to provide the best expected reconstruction of 3D mesh sequence at the decoder side. The method is based on partitioning the mesh frames into two sets by temporal subsampling and encoding each set independently by a 3D dynamic mesh coder. The encoded independent bitstreams or so-called descriptions are transm...
Paired 3D Model Generation with Conditional Generative Adversarial Networks
Öngün, Cihan; Temizel, Alptekin (2018-09-14)
Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are shown to be successful at generating new and realistic samples including 3D object models. Conditional GAN, a variant of GANs, allows generating samples in given conditions. However, objects generated for each condition are different and it does not allow generation of the same object in different conditions. In this paper, we first adapt conditional GAN, which is originally designed for 2D image generation, to the problem of generating 3D models in different rotat...
