This book is a composition of diverse points of view regarding the application of Computational Intelligence techniques and methods into Remote Sensing data and problems. It is the general consensus that classi?cation, and related data processing, and global optimization methods are the main topics of Compu- tional Intelligence. Global random optimization algorithms appear in this book, such as the Simulated Annealing in chapter 6 and the Genetic Algorithms p- posedinchapters3and9. Muchofthecontentsofthe bookaredevotedto image segmentationandrecognition,using diversetoolsfromregionsofComputational Intelligence, ranging from Arti?cial Neural Networks to Markov Random Field modelling. However, there are some fringe topics, such the parallel implem- tation of some algorithms or the image watermarking that make evident that thefrontiersbetweenComputationalIntelligenceandneighboringcomputational disciplines are blurred and the fences run low and full of holes in many places. The book starts with a review of the current designs of hyperspectral sensors, more appropriately named Imaging Spectrometers. Knowing the shortcomings and advantages of the diverse designs may condition the results on some app- cations of Computational Intelligence algorithms to the processing and und- standing of them Remote Sensing images produced by these sensors. Then the book contentsmovesinto basic signalprocessing techniquessuch ascompression and watermarking applied to remote sensing images. With the huge amount of remotesensinginformationandtheincreasingrateatwhichitisbeingproduced, itseems only naturalthatcompressiontechniques willleapintoa prominentrole in the near future, overcoming the resistances of the users against uncontrolled manipulation of "their" data. Watermarkingis the way to address issues of o- ership authentication in digital contents.Reseña del editor:
This book is a composition of different points of view regarding the application of Computational Intelligence techniques and methods to Remote Sensing data and applications. It is the general consensus that classification, its related data processing, and global optimization methods are core topics of Computational Intelligence. Much of the content of the book is devoted to image segmentation and recognition, using diverse tools from different areas of the Computational Intelligence field, ranging from Artificial Neural Networks to Markov Random Field modeling. The book covers a broad range of topics, starting from the hardware design of hyperspectral sensors, and data handling problems, namely data compression and watermarking issues, as well as autonomous web services. The main contents of the book are devoted to image analysis and efficient (parallel) implementations of these analysis techniques. The classes of images dealt with throughout the book are mostly multispectral-hyperspectral images, though there are some instances of processing Synthetic Aperture Radar images.
