CALL FOR PAPERS
We have entered an era of big data. The requirements of different investigations have increased the specialization and diversity of techniques of acquiring remote sensing image. We can take them as a new type of multimedia data. Remote sensing image often differ features in terms of their resolution, revisit cycle, spectrum, and mode of imaging. It is popular to refer to the three Vs when characterizing big data: remarkable growths in the volume, velocity and variety of data. However, remote sensing image big data has several concrete and special characteristics: multi-source, multi-scale, high dimensional, dynamic-state, isomer, and non-linear characteristics. There is no doubt that existing techniques and methods are too limited to solve all the problems of remote-sensing image data completely. Therefore, more advanced methods are required to find the implicit law hidden within the remote-sensing image.
In recent years, machine learning methods play an essential role in the data analysis of remote sensing, including image classification, image segmentation, registration and fusion, target detection, information retrieval, etc. Due to large variations and complexity of the in space and time, it is typically difficult to derive analytical solutions or formulations to represent characteristic and changing in the surface of the earth based on remote sensing data. Researchers are now beginning to adapt advanced modern machine learning and pattern recognition techniques, such as manifold learning, sparse representation, low-rank presentation, compressive sensing and deep learning, to solve related problems in the complex remote sensing data. The main scope of this special issue is to help boost the scientific research within the broad field of machine learning in the remote sensing image data. This special issue will focus on major trends and challenges in this area, and will present work aimed to identify new cutting-edge research and their applications in remote sensing images.
The topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to:
• Machine Learning theories such as SVM, low rank, compressive sensing, sparse coding, transfer learning and deep learning
• Correlativity analysis for remote sensing image
• Correlativity analysis for GIS data
• Reconstruction of remote sensing image
• Fusion of remote sensing data
• Classification based on remote sensing image
• Change detection based on spatial-temporal remote sensing image
• Sparse representation of remote sensing image
• Dimension reduction for remote sensing data
• High performance computing for complex remote sensing data
• Computing vision and target detection based on remote sensing image
• Applications based on remote sensing image, such as agriculture, environment, land cover, hydrology and etc.
• Data visualization and analysis for GIS and remote sensing data
