Computational Intelligence-Based Algorithms for Data Mining of Earth Observation Imagery

Professor Victor-Emil Neagoe
Polytechnic University of Bucharest

Abstract: Data mining of Earth Observation (EO) imagery has wide applications for generation of various kinds of civil or military maps: maps of vegetation, maps of mineral resources of the Earth, land-use maps (buildings, airports, agricultural fields, woods, rivers, lakes, and highways), and so on. Disaster management poses also significant challenges for space data analysis, to aid management and recovery in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters: earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, floods and similar catastrophes. We present some computational intelligence (CI)-based approaches for remote sensing image data mining. CI is inspired by biological and natural intelligence, resulting so-called„intelligent systems” (nature-inspired intelligent technological paradigms); this is dealing with Artificial Neural Networks, Swarm Intelligence, Evolutionary Computing, and so on. Experimental results of the developed and implemented CIbased algorithms by the speaker team for multispectral EO image classification and for change detection in time-series of satellite images are given.
