An original technique, based on ridge point detection directly from gray scale fingerprint images, is proposed. Our method avoids serious problems that algorithms which perform binarization of fingerprint images have. Each step can be easily hardware implemented, allowing a relevant speed up of the whole process.

An automatic geo-spatial object recognition algorithm for high resolution satellite images
Ergul, Mustafa; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2013-09-26)
This paper proposes a novel automatic geo-spatial object recognition algorithm for high resolution satellite imaging. The proposed algorithm consists of two main steps; a hypothesis generation step with a local feature-based algorithm and a verification step with a shape-based approach. In the hypothesis generation step, a set of hypothesis for possible object locations is generated, aiming lower missed detections and higher false-positives by using a Bag of Visual Words type approach. In the verification s...
Automated building detection from satellite images by using shadow information as an object invariant
Yüksel, Barış; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2012)
Apart from classical pattern recognition techniques applied for automated building detection in satellite images, a robust building detection methodology is proposed, where self-supervision data can be automatically extracted from the image by using shadow and its direction as an invariant for building object. In this methodology; first the vegetation, water and shadow regions are detected from a given satellite image and local directional fuzzy landscapes representing the existence of building are generate...
Robust Automatic Target Recognition in FLIR imagery
Soyman, Yusuf (2012-04-24)
In this paper, a robust automatic target recognition algorithm in FLIR imagery is proposed. Target is first segmented out from the background using wavelet transform. Segmentation process is accomplished by parametric Gabor wavelet transformation. Invariant features that belong to the target, which is segmented out from the background, are then extracted via moments. Higher-order moments, while providing better quality for identifying the image, are more sensitive to noise. A trade-off study is then perform...
Alignment of uncalibrated images for multi-view classification
Arık, Sercan Ömer; Vural, Elif; Frossard, Pascal (2011-12-29)
Efficient solutions for the classification of multi-view images can be built on graph-based algorithms when little information is known about the scene or cameras. Such methods typically require a pairwise similarity measure between images, where a common choice is the Euclidean distance. However, the accuracy of the Euclidean distance as a similarity measure is restricted to cases where images are captured from nearby viewpoints. In settings with large transformations and viewpoint changes, alignment of im...
PROGRESSIVE COMPRESSION OF DIGITAL ELEVATION DATA USING MESHES
Kose, Kivanc; Yılmaz, Erdal; ÇETİN, AHMET ENİS (2009-07-17)
In this paper a new Digital Elevation Map (DEM) image compression algorithm is proposed. DEM image can be threated as a grayscale image, whose pixel values are the elevation values of the map points. The grayscale DEM image is compressed using an adaptive wavelet based image compression algorithm. The method, which is an extension of the progressive mesh compression takes advantage of the multiresolution property of the wavelets while coding the map images. This makes it possible to decode different resolut...
