A new approach is presented to extract more robust affine invariant features for image matching. The novelty of our approach is a hierarchical filtering strategy for affine invariant feature detection, which is based on information entropy and spatial dispersion quality constraints. The concept of spatial dispersion quality is introduced to quantify the(More)
Public participation is very important for the success of an urban planning project, since any urban planning project will ultimately become part of the everyday life of the public. Most members of the general public are not urban planning professionals; therefore, well-designed visualization and interactive tools can help expand their participation in(More)
In a service-oriented environment, heterogeneous data from distributed data archiving centers and various geo-processing services are chained together dynamically to generate on-demand data products. Creating an executable service chain requires detailed specification of metadata for data sets and service instances. Using metadata tracking,(More)
Integrating Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) services with Geo-Processing Workflows (GPW) has become a bottleneck for Sensor Web-based applications, especially remote-sensing observations. This paper presents a common GPW framework for Sensor Web data service as part of the NASA Sensor Web project. This abstract framework includes abstract GPW model(More)
A geospatial catalogue service provides a network-based meta-information repository and interface for advertising and discovering shared geospatial data and services. Descriptive information (i.e., metadata) for geospatial data and services is structured and organized in catalogue services. The approaches currently available for searching and using that(More)
A novel approach by integrating multi-view aerial imagery and lidar data is proposed to reconstruct 3D building models with accurate geometric position and fine details. First, a new algorithm is introduced for determination of principal orientations of a building, thus benefiting to improve the correctness and robustness of boundary segment extraction in(More)
Flooding in general is insignificant event worldwide and also in Thailand. The Central plain, the Northern plain and the northeast of Thailand are frequently flooded areas, caused by yearly monsoons. The Thai government has extra expenditure to provide disaster relief and for the restoration of flood affected structures, persons, livestock, etc. Current(More)
Building boundary data are necessary for the real estate industry, 3D city models and many other applications. In this study, a novel approach integrated high resolution imagery and Lidar data is proposed for automatically obtaining building boundaries with precise geometric position and details. The high resolution images were used to directly extract the(More)
Recent advances in Web-related technologies have significantly promoted the wide sharing and integrated analysis of distributed geospatial data. Geospatial applications often involve diverse sources of data and complex geoprocessing functions. Existing Web-based GIS focuses more on access to distributed geospatial data. In scientific problem solving, the(More)
