Recent Advances in Remote Sensing Image Search and Retrieval from Large Archives
During the last decade, a huge number of earth observation (EO) satellites with optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar sensors onboard have been launched and advances in satellite systems have increased the amount and variety of EO data. This has led to massive EO data archives with huge amount of remote sensing (RS) images, from which retrieving useful information is challenging. In view of that, content based image retrieval (CBIR) has attracted great attention in the RS community. In this talk, a general overview on scientific and practical problems related to RS image characterization, indexing and search from massive archives will be initially discussed. Then, recent developments that can overcome the considered problems will be introduced by focusing on semantic-sensitive hashing based scalable and accurate RS CBIR systems.
