Modern aerial imaging platforms provide wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) at high spatial and moderate temporal resolutions making feasible a range of new applications. We consider the dual tasks of registering WAMI frames to geo-referenced vector road-maps and tracking vehicles through the progression of WAMI frames. We present a novel algorithm that(More)
To enrich large-scale visual analytics applications enabled by aerial wide area motion imagery (WAMI), we propose a novel methodology for accurately registering a geo-referenced vector roadmap to WAMI by using the locations of detected vehicles and determining a parametric transform that aligns these locations with the network of roads in the roadmap.(More)
For specular regions (SRs), the assumption of brightness (or other) constancy between images corresponding to multiple views of a scene breaks down. As a consequence, optical-flow (OF) based motion-estimation (ME) algorithms that rely on constancy assumptions fail for specular regions. At the same time estimation of SRs in an image is also prone to errors,(More)
