This paper presents a vegetation detection application with semi-supervised target detection using hyperspectral unmixing and segmentation algorithms. The method firstly compares the known target spectral signature from a generic source such as a spectral library with each pixel of hyperspectral data cube employing Spectral Angle Mapper (SAM) algorithm. The pixel(s) with the best match are assumed to be the most likely target vegetation locations. The regions around these potential target locations are further analyzed via hyperspectral unmixing techniques to obtain the real spectra in the image. The abundance fractions are evaluated so as to compare the algorithm performance with those of other methods. As a post processing technique meanshift segmentation algorithm utilized.

Efficient Bayesian track-before-detect
Tekinalp, Serhat; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2006-10-11)
This paper presents a novel Bayesian recursive track-before-detect (TBD) algorithm for detection and tracking of dim targets in optical image sequences. The algorithm eliminates the need for storing past observations by recursively incorporating new data acquired through sensor to the existing information. It calculates the likelihood ratio for optimal detection and estimates target state simultaneously. The technique does not require velocity-matched filtering and hence, it is capable of detecting any targ...
Süperpikseller ve İmza Tabanlı Yöntemler Kullanarak Hiperspektral Hedef Tespiti
Kütük, Mustafa; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2019-06-27)
Spectral signature based methods which form the mainstream in hyperspectral target detection can be classified mainly in three categories as the methods using background modeling, subspace projection based methods, and hybrid methods merging linear unmixing with background estimation. A common characteristic of all these methods is to classify each pixel of the hyperspectral image as a target or background while ignoring the spatial relations between neighbor pixels. Integration of contextual information de...
Gray level topological corner detection
Cihan, Ibrahim Kivanc; Senel, Hakan Gueray (2007-06-07)
A new corner detection algorithm based on the topological median filter is proposed. Topological quasi dilation and erosion operators with circular structuring element are used to detect the corners on gray level images.
Hyperspectral Unmixing Based Analysis of Forested Areas
Başkurt, Nur Didem; Omruuzun, Fatih; Çetin, Yasemin (2015-05-19)
This study aims to extract the planted regions in partially forested area by analyzing the hyperspectral remote sensing images acquired with airborne platforms. The proposed study utilizes the endmember signatures obtained from hyperspectral unmixing algorithms in order to classify the image pixels. The classification algorithm selects the endmember with highest spectral vegetation characteristic, and associates this endmember with the planted area pixels. The algorithm is tested on a scene covering METU An...
From Ramp Discontinuities to Segmentation Tree
Akbaş, Emre (2009-09-27)
This paper presents a new algorithm for low-level multiscale segmentation of images. The algorithm is designed to detect image regions regardless of their shapes, sizes, and levels of interior homogeneity, by doing a multiscale analysis without assuming any prior models of region geometry. As in previous work, a region is modeled as a homogeneous set of connected pixels surrounded by ramp discontinuities. A new transform, called the ramp transform, is described, which is used to detect ramp discontinuities ...
