We investigate bag-of-visual-words (BOVW) approaches to land-use classification in high-resolution overhead imagery. We consider a standard non-spatial representation in which the frequencies but not the locations of quantized image features are used to discriminate between classes analogous to how words are used for text document classification without(More)
We describe a novel image representation termed spatial pyramid co-occurrence which characterizes both the photometric and geometric aspects of an image. Specifically, the co-occurrences of visual words are computed with respect to spatial predicates over a hierarchical spatial partitioning of an image. The representation captures both the absolute and(More)
Nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) gate the only conduits for nucleocytoplasmic transport in eukaryotes. Their gate is formed by nucleoporins containing large intrinsically disordered domains with multiple phenylalanine-glycine repeats (FG domains). In combination, these are hypothesized to form a structurally and chemically homogeneous network of random coils(More)
Image texture is useful in image browsing, search and retrieval. A texture descriptor based on a multiresolution decomposition using Gabor wavelets is proposed. The descriptor consists of two parts: a perceptual browsing component (PBC) and a similarity retrieval component (SRC). The extraction methods of both PBC and SRC are based on a multiresolution(More)
Texture features have long been used in remote sensing applications to represent and retrieve image regions similar to a query region. Various representations of texture have been proposed based on the Fourier power spectrum, spatial co-occurrence, wavelets, Gabor filters, etc. These representations vary in their computational complexity and their(More)
A richer set of land-cover classes are observable in satellite imagery than ever before due to the increased sub-meter resolution. Individual objects, such as cars and houses, are now recognizable. This work considers a new category of image descriptors based on local measures of saliency for labelling land-cover classes characterized by identifiable(More)
—This paper investigates local invariant features for geographic (overhead) image retrieval. Local features are particularly well suited for the newer generations of aerial and satellite imagery whose increased spatial resolution, often just tens of centimeters per pixel, allows a greater range of objects and spatial patterns to be recognized than ever(More)
Numerous applications of data mining to scientific data involve the induction of a classification model. In many cases, the collection of data is not performed with this task in mind, and therefore, the data might contain irrelevant or redundant features that affect negatively the accuracy of the induction algorithms. The size and dimensionality of typical(More)
There is a growing interest in using general-purpose cameras to monitor a variety of physical phenomenon. In particular, a number of visibility camera networks have recently been deployed to complement traditional means for estimating atmospheric visibility. However, the images from these cameras have so far only been used to perform qualitative analysis.(More)
BACKGROUND Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation is a powerful technique for sampling the meta-stable and transitional conformations of proteins and other biomolecules. Computational data clustering has emerged as a useful, automated technique for extracting conformational states from MD simulation data. Despite extensive application, relatively little work(More)
