The Department of Electronics and Communication, School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore Campus, organized a two day National Seminar on Techniques & Applications of Hyper Spectral Image Analysis from April 19-20, 2016.
Over the past decade, hyperspectral image analysis has matured into one of the most powerful and fastest-growing technologies in the field of remote sensing. Hyperspectral imagery provides the potential for more accurate and detailed information extraction than possible with any other type of remotely sensed data. The special characteristics of hyperspectral images pose different processing problems, which must be necessarily tackled under specific mathematical formalisms, such as classification, segmentation, spectral unmixing, and so on.
The application fields of Hyperspectral image processing includes
- Geology - Mineral detection, Cover homogeneity
- Defense - Target detection, Mine detection
- Public safety - Logistics & operations, Fire risk, floods
- Regulation & Policy making - Urban growth Settlements, population movements
The seminar topics include Introduction to Hyperspectral Image Processing, LIDAR Image Processing, Algorithms and Application Areas of Hyperspecral Image Processing, Advanced Spacial Statistical Methods for high dimensional satellite data processing and analysis, Fussy sets and Granular Computing on Hyperspectral Images.
The speakers include Dr. B. S Daya Sagar (Professor, Systems Science and Information Unit, Indian Statistical Institute Bangalore Centre), Dr. Saroj Kumar Meher (Assistant Professor, Systems Science and Information Unit, Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore), Dr. Rama Rao Nidamanuri (Associate Professor, Department of Earth and Space Sciences, Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology, (Dept. of Space, Govt. of India), Thiruvananthapuram), Ms. A. M. Ramiya (Reader, Department of Earth and Space Sciences, Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (Dept. of Space, Govt. of India), Thiruvananthapuram).
