Multi-spectral images acquired from different viewpoints and positions are required to be registered for various applications. Registration is generally achieved by feature extraction followed by matching of these features. In this paper, registration of multispectral satellite images using Speeded Up Robust Features (SURF) method is examined. The performance of SURF for registration of high resolution satellite images captured at different bands is evaluated. Scale Restriction (SR) method is adapted to SURF to improve multispectral image registration performance. Matching performance between different bands using SURF, U-SURF, and SURF with SR and U-SURF with SR is tested and robustness of these with respect to orientation and scale is evaluated.


Hanolistic : a hierarchical automatic image annotation system using holistic approach
Öztimur, Özge; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2008)
Automatic image annotation is the process of assigning keywords to digital images depending on the content information. In one sense, it is a mapping from the visual content information to the semantic context information. In this thesis, we propose a novel approach for automatic image annotation problem, where the annotation is formulated as a multivariate mapping from a set of independent descriptor spaces, representing a whole image, to a set of words, representing class labels. For this purpose, a hiera...
Natural language query processing in ontology based multimedia databases
Aygül, Filiz Alaca; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis a natural language query interface is developed for semantic and spatio-temporal querying of MPEG-7 based domain ontologies. The underlying ontology is created by attaching domain ontologies to the core Rhizomik MPEG-7 ontology. The user can pose concept, complex concept (objects connected with an “AND” or “OR” connector), spatial (left, right . . . ), temporal (before, after, at least 10 minutes before, 5 minutes after . . . ), object trajectory and directional trajectory (east, west, southe...
A hierarchical modeling tool for ınstructional design
Azgür, Mehmet Serhat; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
A component-oriented tool for hierarchical modeling of instructional designs is developed. The motivation is to show that hierarchical representation of instructional designs is easier, better and more effective for modeling. Additionally a modeling language is developed to provide an effective, flexible and easy to use integration model in which all teaching components are discovered, defined and connected. In order to fulfill the above purposes an abstract notation is developed that is sufficiently genera...
Multi Modal Satellite Image Registration Using SIFT
Vural, Mehmet Firat; Yardimci, Yasemin; Temizel, Alptekin (2009-04-11)
Multi modal images need to be registered in order to use the unique information contained in these different modality images. In this paper, modifications on Scale Invariant Feature Transformation (SIFT), which is a popular method used for image matching, to improve its success on multi modal images are described. SIFT algorithm is immune to linear and partially immune to non-linear illumination changes. However, due to non linear illumination changes on multi-modal images, SIFT is not as powerful as it is ...
Ontology-based spatio-temporal video management system
Şimşek, Atakan; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, a system, called Ontology-Based Spatio-Temporal Video Management System (OntoVMS) is developed in order to supply a framework which can be used for semantic data modeling and querying in video files. OntoVMS supports semantic data modeling which can be divided into concept modeling, spatio-temporal relation and trajectory data modeling. The system uses Rhizomik MPEG-7 Ontology as the core ontology. Moreover ontology expression capability is extended by automatically attaching domain ontologi...
