The goal of this project is to improve the dwellings detection methodology and to develop an operational stand-alone application in order to provide reliable and consistent results, independent of the imaging sensors type and different environmental and exposition conditions.
The main topic of the dedicated technology enhancement is the improvement and automation of pre-processing approach, feature extraction algorithm based on Mathematical Morphology operators and results verification.
The final outcome of this project is an application for decision support in emergency response, ready to use by the European Commission entities, humanitarian aid agencies, UN organizations.
This project is funded/co-funded from Norway Grants in the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme operated by the National Centre for Research and Development.
An improved automated procedure for informal and temporary dwellings detection and enumeration, using mathematical morphology operators on VHR satellite data
