Nearest neighbor (NN) techniques are commonly used in remote sensing, pattern recognition and statistics to classify objects into a predefined number of categories based on a given set of predictors. These techniques are especially useful in those cases exhibiting highly nonlinear relationship between variables. In most studies the distance measure is(More)
Land cover classification has been widely investigated in remote sensing for agricultural, ecological and hydrological applications. Landsat images with multispectral bands are commonly used to study the numerous classification methods in order to improve the classification accuracy. Thermal remote sensing provides valuable information to investigate the(More)
Following the suggestion made by Johnson (Johnson B.A., 2015), a polygon-based cross validation (CV) method is compared to the pixel-based CV method to classify different levels of land cover categories using a single-date Landsat 8 image and time series of Landsat TM images. Also, different variants of band combinations, with and without the thermal bands,(More)
In many practical classification problems the severeness of misclassifications depends on the semantics of true and predicted class in the underlying domain. We present such a problem from machine vision, where additionally the class probabilities are extremely unbalanced. Due to their in-terpretability neuro-fuzzy classifiers axe a popular way to extract(More)
In this paper, we present a top down approach for integrated process modelling and distributed process execution. The integrated process model can be utilized for global monitoring and visualization and distributed process models for local execution. Our main focus in this paper is the presentation of the approach to support automatic generation and linking(More)
A new class of problems has been identified for workflow management wherein this technology imposes an additional overhead on users which is not adequately compensated by the benefits gained. Multiple observations from real cases identify a contradiction between the preferred work practice and some fundamental principles behind workflow systems. The focus(More)
