Hyperspectral imaging based land cover / land use classification accuracy is expected to be improved by fusion with a LIDAR based Digital Elevation Model (DEM). To this end, we propose a multi-modal architecture, as well as a filtering technique extracting a shadow invariant one dimensional feature from a pixel spectrum. The proposed approach allows treating shadow and non-shadow areas separately. DEM is incorporated into this architecture through feature extraction and post classification procedures. A digital terrain model estimated from DEM is used to calculate object heights. Slope, curvature and polynomial surface fitting based features are extracted in different scales. In post classification, DEM segments and relatively high objects obtained from DEM are interpreted by superposition with the class map.

Automatic building extraction from high resolution satellite images for map updating: A model based approach
San, D. Koc; TÜRKER, MUSTAFA (2007-10-12)
An approach was developed for automatically updating the buildings of an existing vector database from high resolution satellite images using spectral image classification, Digital Elevation Models (DEM) and the model-based extraction techniques. First, the areas that contain buildings are detected using spectral image classification and the normalized Digital Surface Model (nDSM). The classified output provides the shapes and the approximate locations of the buildings. However, those buildings that have si...

In this thesis, optical system design, integration and testing of a compact LIDAR system with 270 degree field-of-view that based on time of flight principle is developed by Rekrom Optoelectronics. This system can identify objects and measure distances up to 100 m away. LIDAR has become a much needed and used technology in various fields. The most important of these areas are robotic systems, autonomous vehicles and unmanned aerial, land and sea platforms navigation and environmental awareness. The main r...
Wavelet-based outlier detection and denoising of airborne laser scanning data
Akyay, Tolga; Karslıoğlu, Mahmut Onur; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2008)
The method of airborne laser scanning also named as LIDAR has recently turned out to be an efficient way for generating high quality digital surface and elevation models. In this work, wavelet-based outlier detection and different wavelet thresholding (wavelet shrinkage) methods for denoising of airborne laser scanning data are discussed. The task is to investigate the effect of wavelet-based outlier detection and find out which wavelet thresholding methods provide best denoising results for post-processi...
Unsharp Masking Filter Based Shadow-Invariant Feature Extraction For Hyperspectral Signatures
Sakarya, Ufuk; Demirkesen, Can; Teke, Mustafa (2014-04-25)
Hyperspectral image processing is an important research topic in remote sensing. The effect of atmosphere, especially cloud shadows need to be taken care of in hyperspectral image processing analysis. In this paper, a shadow-invariant feature extraction technique based on unsharp mask filtering is proposed for hyperspectral signatures. This technique is designed to remedy the problem of one material having different spectral signatures due to illumination condition. Similarity of the two signatures belongin...
Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Dimension Reduction Experiment Results For Global And Local Information Based Linear Discriminant Analysis
Sakarya, Ufuk (2015-05-19)
Thermal infrared hyperspectral image processing has become an important research topic in remote sensing. One of the research topics in thermal infrared hyperspectral image classification is dimension reduction. In this paper, thermal infrared hyperspectral dimension reduction experiment results for global and local information based linear discriminant analysis is presented. Advantages of the use of not only global pattern information, but also local pattern information are tested in thermal infrared hyper...
