Discontinuity mapping with automatic lineament extraction from high resolution satellite imagery

2004-09-01
In this study, automatic lineament analysis is performed by using high resolution satellite imagery for identification of rock discontinuities. A case study area is selected as an Andesite mine area in Gölbaı, Ankara, Turkey. For the high resolution data 8-bit Ikonos Precision Plus with 1 meter resolution orthorectified image is used. The image data contain three bands as blue, green, red as band 1, band 2 and band 3, respectively. Then an additional band (fourth band) for the image is assigned by obtaining the average of the three bands. The automatic lineament extraction process is carried out with LINE module of PCI Geomatica v8.2. In order to determine the most accurate parameters of LINE, an accuracy assessment is carried out. To be the reference of the output, manual lineament extraction with directional filtering in four principal directions (N-S, E-W, NE-SW, NW-SE) is found to be the most suitable method. For the comparison of automatic lineament extraction and manual lineament extraction processes, total length and number of lineaments and directional analyses are carried out by constructing the rose diagrams. Besides these, field studies and previous studies carried out in the study area are also taken into consideration. After the accuracy assesssment, final parameters of automatically extracted lineaments are determined. The lineament map produced in this study is found to be a very efficient in mapping the discontinuities for mining applications in terms of cost and time effectiveness.

Hypothesis based detection of building with rectilinear projection in satellite images using shade and color information
Güdücü, Volkan; Halıcı, Uğur (2010-12-01)
A new hypothesis based method for detecting rectilinear buildings, that have ground projection made of combination of rectangles, in satellite images is proposed. While the hypotheses are established using the lines detected in the satellite images they are verified by using shadow and color segmentation information. The proposed method is implemented in MATLAB and tested in satellite images of different urban areas. The experimental results obtained are encouraging. ©2010 IEEE.
Image fusion for improving spatial resolution of multispectral satellite images
Ünlüsoy, Deniz; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi; Department of Geological Engineering (2013)
In this study, four different image fusion techniques have been applied to high spectral and low spatial resolution satellite images with high spatial and low spectral resolution images to obtain fused images with increased spatial resolution, while preserving spectral information as much as possible. These techniques are intensity-hue-saturation (IHS) transform, principle component analysis (PCA), Brovey transform (BT), and Wavelet transform (WT) image fusion. Images used in the study belong to Çankırı reg...
Analysis of near-field ultra-wideband radar imaging algorithms
Arabacı, Ahmet; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
Recently, near-field ultra-wideband radar imaging algorithms have an important place in short range imaging applications by providing high resolution in both range and cross-range. In this study, the near-field ultra-wideband radar imaging algorithms in the literature such as Holographic Image Reconstruction Algorithm, Range Migration Algorithm, MIMO Based Range Migration Algorithm and MIMO Based Kirchhoff Migration Algorithm have been implemented using MATLAB. The algorithms are applied to modeled transmit...
Automated Detection of Arbitrarily Shaped Buildings in Complex Environments From Monocular VHR Optical Satellite Imagery
Ok, Ali Ozgun; Senaras, Caglar; Yuksel, Baris (2013-03-01)
This paper introduces a new approach for the automated detection of buildings from monocular very high resolution (VHR) optical satellite images. First, we investigate the shadow evidence to focus on building regions. To do that, we propose a new fuzzy landscape generation approach to model the directional spatial relationship between buildings and their shadows. Once all landscapes are collected, a pruning process is developed to eliminate the landscapes that may occur due to non-building objects. The fina...
Alteration identification by hyperspectral remote sensing in sisorta gold prospect (Sivas-Turkey)
Yetkin, Erdem; Toprak, Vedat; Department of Geological Engineering (2009)
Imaging spectrometry data or hyperspectral imagery acquired using airborne systems have been used in the geologic community since the early 1980’s and represent a mature technology. The solar spectral range 0.4–2.5 μm provides abundant information about hydroxyl-bearing minerals, sulfates and carbonates common to many geologic units and hydrothermal alteration assemblages. Satellite based Hyperion image data is used to implement and test hyperspectral processing techniques to identify alteration minerals an...
