Remote Sensing Applications

Satellite acquisitions are of fundamental importance for the monitoring of the Earth’s surface in different application domains. Land monitoring, urban planning, coastal monitoring and disaster management, such as floods, earthquakes take benefit from the analysis of Remote Sensing images. In this context, image processing methods assume great importance, thanks to its ability to identify information used for the monitoring of different situations and to support authority decision.

Some of the considered case studies are:

  • Oil spill identification
  • Ship identification
  • Sea surface analysis
  • Azimuth ambiguities
  • Flood monitoring
