Shadow Detection in Aerial Images using Machine Learning

Shadows are present in a wide range of aerial images from forested scenes to urban environments. The presence of shadows degrades the performance of computer vision al- gorithms in a diverse set of applications such as image registration, object segmentation, object detection and recognition. Therefore, detection and mitigation of shadows is of paramount importance and can significantly improve the performance of computer vision algorithms in the aforementioned applications. There are several existing approaches to shadow detection in aerial images including chromaticity methods, texture-based meth- ods, geometric, physics-based methods, and approaches using neural networks in machine learning.

Shadow detection in color aerial images based on HSI space and color attenuation relationship

Shadow detection in color aerial images based on HSI space and color attenuation relationship

5 Conclusions This article is devoted to the problem of shadow detection in color aerial images. Hue singularity pixels are extracted. The candidate shadow and nonshadow regions are con- structed on the base of the modified ratio maps by using the Otsu ’ s thresholding method and the connected compo- nent analysis. The intensity property, chromaticity property of the shadow areas, and the color attenuation relationship derived from Planck ’ s blackbody irradiance law are used iteratively to segment each candidate region into smaller sub-regions, so that whether each sub-region is true shadow region is identified. The extracted hue singularity pixels are classified on the base of its neighboring pixels.

Shadow Detection and Reconstruction in Satellite Images using Support Vector Machine and Image In-painting

Shadow Detection and Reconstruction in Satellite Images using Support Vector Machine and Image In-painting

KEYWORDS: Support Vector Machine, Median filter, image in-painting. I.INTRODUCTION Satellite images play a key role in the remote sensing field and using these images it is easy to identify each and every object such as shadows, buildings, roads etc. Shadow occurs when objects occlude light from light source. Shadows are represented as undesired information that will strongly affect the images. Due to shadows it is not possible to recognize the original image of a particular object. Shadow in an image reduces the reliability of many computer vision algorithms. However it often degrades the visual quality of images. So Shadow detection and removal is an important task in image processing.

Cloud Shadow Detection and Removal from Aerial Photo Mosaics Using Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) Reflectance Images

Cloud Shadow Detection and Removal from Aerial Photo Mosaics Using Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) Reflectance Images

mosaics, there are unique problems and solution possibilities which make ours a relatively novel approach. 1.3 Previous Research There have been many previous attempts to remove clouds and cloud shadows from satellite and aerial imagery. The majority of the cloud shadow removal techniques from satellite imagery depend on having multi-temporal data for a given area. Various methods are used to determine a good, cloud-free image to use in place of the given image. In [9], Helmer and Reufenacht produce a strategy of cloud-free image mosaics using regression trees and histogram matching. They begin by using regression trees to predict image data underneath clouds and cloud shadows from other scene dates, and then use histogram matching to color match the composited piece to the surrounding, overlapping images. Again, what we would like to do is enhance the data under the cloud shadow from images taken within a relatively short period of time, and therefore do not have access to many scene dates. In [25] the authors develop a method to identify and remove clouds and cloud shadows by using an image fusion technique which integrates complementary information into the composite image from multi-temporal images. The area under the cloud has its brightness changes smoothed due to the cloud shadow, and wavelet transforms are used to identify these regions.

Detection in Aerial Images Using Spatial Transformer Networks

Detection in Aerial Images Using Spatial Transformer Networks

11 image. This method however was only shown to work well for large change targets such as coastlines, and farmland fields. Finally, recent research by Kitware and AFRL [30], has found that change detection in WAMI images can be greatly enhanced by applying the differencing to a detection response map rather than to the raw image pixels. By running a Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) based vehicle detection Support Vector Machine (SVM), this paper is able to create a heat map of sort denoting the likelihood that a vehicle is present. When two of these maps are registered and differenced, the pixels with large differences are taken to be potential changes. This process significantly reduces the number of residual bright areas caused by illumination and parallax differences. This method of detecting changes between detection maps rather than raw images was a motivation for the supervised detection methodology presented in this thesis.

pre-processing, segmentation using thresholding, statistical feature extraction using grey Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM), feature choice using Principal element analysis (PCA), and classification using Support Vector Machine (SVM). They need pre-processed the image by improving the distinction of the image, whereas noise filtering was done to get rid of the hair cowl on the skin. Subsequent step was image segmentation wherever the ROI (region of interest) was chosen. During this step, they performed thresholding, image filling to remove the background pixels from within the item, image gap to remove the additional background pixels, smoothening the contour of the object’s boundary and then finally cropping the image to acceptable size. The next step concerned extracting the options of imbalance, border irregularity, Energy, correlation, homogeneity, entropy, skewness and mean. PCA was then wont to cut back the number of options to the most effective five features: TDS, mean, standard deviation, energy, and distinction severally.

Breast Cancer Detection using RF Images- A Machine Learning Approach

Breast Cancer Detection using RF Images- A Machine Learning Approach

ABSTRACT: At the early stage the cancer detection was identified using computer aided system and was tested on the locally with locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) patients. But later the proposed system was integrated with multi- parametric quantitative ultrasound (QUS) spectroscopic methods in conjunction with advanced machine learning techniques. Specifically, a kernel-based metric named maximum mean discrepancy (MMD), a technique for learning from imbalanced data based on random under-sampling, and supervised learning were investigated with response- monitoring data from LABC patients. The CAT system was tested on 55 patients using statistical significance tests and leave-one-subject-out classification techniques. Textural features using state-of-the-art local binary patterns (LBP), and gray-scale intensity features were extracted from the spectral parametric maps in the proposed CAT system.

Analysis and detection of bone tumor in MRI images using machine learning

Analysis and detection of bone tumor in MRI images using machine learning

ABSTRACT Image processing have a vast area under research, in which Medical Imaging is the most significant area to work in. Basically Medical Imaging can be explained as the process of creating human body images for medical and research work. For tumor detection various techniques such as MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), CT (Computerised tomography) scan and Microwave are available among mentioned techniques MRI delivers the best images as it has higher resolution. The abnormalities of the bone can be identified e asily by MRI imaging. Because, the MRI images are of low contrast and contain speckle noise. The image quality may not be good for analyzing. So, to reduce speckle noise and for better analyzing, preprocessing can be done using gabor filter. To increase the contrast of the image using adaptive histogram equalization .Then segmentation method is used to segment the tumor part of bone using k -Means algorithm. Feature extraction can be used to extract and speed up the decision-making process for SVM. Finally, the output is displayed in SVM and this helps to increase the accuracy of an abnormalities. In this paper the tumor detection have been proposed using machine learning.

Machine Learning and Images for Malware Detection and Classification

Machine Learning and Images for Malware Detection and Classification

For clustering algorithms, a hypothesis was made while researching if the original dataset can be achieved and recreated, meaning that the perfect result would be 25 clusters. Best estimation of clusters was from DBScan Algorithm, and then MeanShift did an evaluation of 15 groups. Then, again a hypothesis if a particular initiation is given by a researcher and a certain number of groups how the results will be using Kmeans and Mini- BatchKMeans. A comparison was made of the two to identify the differences. The differ- ences discovered can be interpreted as non-crucial having the conclusion that they per- form the same way in the current dataset. These algorithms should be carried out on other datasets as well to see if they perform the same way. Also, that is the reason why malware classification is an ongoing examination and research as there is no explicitly an opinion that guaranteed that these algorithms tested will perform the same to different malware families. Each dataset is a different problem.

Machine Learning for Anomaly Detection in Overlapping Aerial Image Streams

Machine Learning for Anomaly Detection in Overlapping Aerial Image Streams

The performance of the selected learning algorithms and features is promising. All of the selected features proved to be sufficiently discriminating, with the exception of the local binary patterns. This is understandable, as the feature may be too local to yield much information about the images as a whole. Furthermore, it is unclear that the texture would necessarily change when images are out of line, or that there could not be significant tex- ture changes in acceptable image pairs, e.g., the entrance of a body of water or a building. The most promising of the learning algorithms was the logistic regression model, which was able to detect 95.6% of anomalous images with a false-positive rate of 6.7%. The neural network had a very low false-positive rate of 3.8%, but failed to identify 1/4 of the anomalous images. As stated in the methodology section, neural networks typi- cally perform better with extremely large training sets, so there is potential for significant improvement with more training data. The SVM tuning (mainly of the soft margin hyper- parameter) was a balance between a high false-positive rate, and a relatively low detection rate. Since in our problem it is important to have as high of a detection rate as possible, we chose to increase this at the expense of also increasing the false-positive rate. The decision tree served its purpose as a point of comparison, but did not perform adequately in comparison to the other models. It is clear that this problem is not structured in a way that is amenable to tree learning.

Automated elephant detection and classification from aerial infrared and colour images using deep learning

Automated elephant detection and classification from aerial infrared and colour images using deep learning

4.5 System performance The main goal of this thesis is to investigate the feasibility of a system that uses a fast detector and a sophisticated classifier to detect elephants from aerial imagery of difficult environments. Our systems starts with the original IR and RGB images. Using the techniques from Chapter 3 we process the IR images and determine which regions might contain elephants, we then map the locations to the RGB images and crop patches out. In this chapter we trained our models, and now we are ready to evaluate their performance through different scenarios. We start with a single IR and RGB image pair, use the IR image to determine the regions of interest, map those regions to the RGB image, crop them, and finally classify them. Using the ground truth labels we can determine the performance of each model on the same data. The most important test is how well the models perform on the entire dataset of 890 images, 121 of which contain elephants. This final test is the closest we can simulate a real-world scenario, and will give us a good indication of how feasible our approach would be out in the field. This test does include data similar to that used during training, which is usually considered a taboo. Unfortunately we were not able to capture more data, and we decided to include this test just as a proof-of-concept that the trained models can be applied to full images. It should be noted that these images include large numbers of negative regions not seen during training, as well as unaugmented positive samples badly centred (via the unadjusted homograph method, as opposed to the manual method used for training), and we therefore believe the results are relevant and useful.

Forgery Detection of Spliced Images Using Machine Learning Classifiers and color Illumination

Forgery Detection of Spliced Images Using Machine Learning Classifiers and color Illumination

M.Tech Student, Dept. of CSE, Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Punjab, India 1 Assistant Professor, Dept. of CSE, Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Punjab, India 2 ABSTRACT: Nowadays, the use of Digital images is everywhere, on the magazines, in newspapers, in hospitals, in shopping malls and all over the Internet. As the development in technology is increasing day by day, at the same time the trust in images is decreasing day by day. Most common type of Image forgery is Image composition which is also termed by the name Image Splicing. Combination of two or more images to generate a completely fake image is known as Image composition. It becomes very hard to differentiate between real image and fake image because of the presence of various powerful editing softwares. As a result in most of the cases, there is a need to prove whether the image is real or not. This paper describes a technique for detecting forgery of composite images using machine learning classifiers Support Vector Machine and Least Square Support Vector Machine and Perceptron with the help of color illumination.

Building Detection using Aerial Images and Digital Surface Models

Building Detection using Aerial Images and Digital Surface Models

In this paper a method for building detection in aerial images based on variational inference of logistic regression is proposed. It consists of three steps. In order to characterize the appearances of buildings in aerial images, an effective bag-of-Words (BoW) method is applied for feature extraction in the first step. In the second step, a classifier of logistic regression is learned using these local features. The logistic regression can be trained using different methods. In this paper we adopt a fully Bayesian treatment for learning the classifier, which has a number of obvious advantages over other learning methods. Due to the presence of hyper prior in the probabilistic model of logistic regression, approximate inference methods have to be applied for prediction. In order to speed up the inference, a variational inference method based on mean field instead of stochastic approximation such as Markov Chain Monte Carlo is applied. After the prediction, a probabilistic map is obtained. In the third step, a fully connected conditional random field model is formulated and the probabilistic map is used as the data term in the model. A mean field inference is utilized in order to obtain a binary building mask. A benchmark data set consisting of aerial images and digital surfaced model (DSM) released by ISPRS for 2D semantic labeling is used for performance evaluation. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Crowd detection from aerial images

Crowd detection from aerial images

v ABSTRACT The detection of crowd from surveillance imagery is important to monitor public places and to ensure public safety. Hence, this work proposes crowd detection from static image captured from Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. The proposed methodology consists of three steps: FAST feature extraction, Gray Level Co- Occurrence Matrix (GLCM) feature computation and the use of Support Vector Machine (SVM) for classification. The use of FAST corner detector is to obtain regions of interest where possible existence of crowd. The application of GLCM is to extract second order statistical texture features for texture analysis. The result of GLCM then, will be classified to crowd and non-crowd using SVM. For evaluation, ten different images were used taken in various crowd formation, event and location.

SHADOW DETECTION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF IMAGES FROM SATELLITE IMAGES: GIS

SHADOW DETECTION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF IMAGES FROM SATELLITE IMAGES: GIS

This classification is implemented using support vector machine (SVM), which proved its effectiveness in the literature of remote sensing data classification. The feature space where the classification task is performed is defined by the original image bands and features extracted by means of the wavelet transform. In particular, a one-level stationary wavelet transform is applied on each spectral band, thus obtaining for each band four space-frequency features. The symlet Wavelet is adopted in order to maximize the sparseness of the transformation while enforcing texture areas. For an original image I composed of B spectral bands, the resulting feature space thus consists of B × (1 + 4) dimensions.

Automatic detection of rust disease of Lentil by machine learning system using microscopic images

Figure 4. Framework of the proposed model 4. CONCLUSIONS This paper exhibited the utilization of microscopic images to detect rust disease on lentil leaves. The different lentil varieties did not influence the algorithm’s ability to recognize rust disease on leaves. BBHE techniques produced the best image contrast enhancement, without unfortunate antiquities and maintain input mean brightness of images. This investigation endeavored to check the achievability of an image processing technique for rust disease detection and the outcomes introduced are promising. Future work is aimed to carry out a similar experiment to detect rust of other crops. One of the fundamental difficulties looked in this investigation was staining protocol which causes a commotion in images. The primary target will be to modify and improve the algorithm to develop a robust algorithm that can make exact recognition of rust disease in field conditions.

Analysis of Mammographic Images for Early Detection of Breast Cancer Using Machine Learning Techniques

Analysis of Mammographic Images for Early Detection of Breast Cancer Using Machine Learning Techniques

The most important thing about estimation of mammography is that it can identify breast variations in the early stages of cancer even before the development any physical symptoms. The American Cancer Society's rules for early breast malignancy location stress mammography and physical examinations. Clearly there are numerous different methods and techniques that are utilized for breast screening and every strategy accomplishes an alternate level of clarity in showing breast images. On the other hand, mammography is the main procedure that has been ended up being successful for breast tumour screening. One of the primary favourable circumstances of utilizing mammography is its cheap expense of usage for a huge populace of subjects. Since overall radiologists screen more than hundreds of films each day, keeping up consistency and exactness in analysis is not simple. This implies that computer supported analytic systems have the best seek after enhancing breast disease identification and reducing morbidity from the disease.

Orientation-selective building detection in aerial images

Orientation-selective building detection in aerial images

4. Conclusion We have proposed an orientation selective building detection framework for aerial images, introducing orientation as a novel feature for object ex- traction purposes. The algorithm starts with feature point detection, used as a directional sampling set to compute orientation statistics and to define the dominant directions of the urban area. The orientation information is then applied to create a novel improved edge map, emphasizing edges only in the main directions. By integrating color, shadow and the improved edge features, and using the illumination information, building candidates are lo- calized. To find the remaining candidates with limited feature evidence, an orthogonality check is introduced. The contours of the localized candidates are extracted by the Chan-Vese active contour algorithm, which might re- sult in diverse, yet less accurate contours. To compensate for this, a novel orientation-selective morphological operator is introduced to refine the final outlines. The extensive object- and pixel-level quantitative evaluation and comparison with six state-of-the-art methods confirm and support the supe- riority of the introduced approach.

Detection and Removal of Shadow Using Very High Resolution Remote Sensing Images

Professor, Department of Computer Science& IT, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathada University, Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India ABSTRACT- The shadows are mainly observed because of tall buildings, towers etc. in urban areas. Shadows in very high resolution (VHR) Remote Sensing images represent serious problems for their full development. To reduce the shadow effects in very high resolution (VHR) Remote Sensing images for their further applications, detection and removal of shadow is necessary which is developed. In this project we have addressed the issue of shadow detection and removal in VHR Remote Sensing images.The detection and classification tasks are implemented by means of support vector machine approach and for noise removal filtering is used. Shadow removal is done using linear regression method. In this method, the shadow blocks of the image are replaced by adjusting the intensities of the shaded points to the statistical characteristic of the non-shadow regions. Then fuse the original image and shadow removal image. Wavelet transform is used for image fusion. Inverse wavelet transform is used for getting original image back from decomposed image.
