Summaries of certain spatial patterns retrieved from multidate remote-sensing data

Received05 Feb 2004


This paper presents an approach to describe patterns in remote-sensed images utilising fuzzy logic. The truth of a linguistic proposition such as “Y is F” can be determined for each pattern characterised by a tuple in the database, where Y is the pattern and F is a summary that applies to that pattern. This proposition is formulated in terms of primary quantitative measures, such as area, length, perimeter, and so forth, of the pattern. Fuzzy descriptions of linguistic summaries help to evaluate the degree to which a summary describes a pattern or object in the database. Techniques, such as clustering and genetic algorithms, are used to mine images. Image mining is a relatively new area of research. It is used to extract patterns from multidated satellite images of a geographic area.
