This study aims at comparing the capability of different sensors to detect land cover materials within an historical urban center. The main objective is to evaluate the added value of hyperspectral sensors in mapping a complex urban context. In this study we used: (a) the ALI and Hyperion satellite data, (b) the LANDSAT ETM+ satellite data, (c) MIVIS(More)
Different landscape elements, including archaeological remains, can be automatically classified when their spectral characteristics are different, but major difficulties occur when extracting and classifying archaeological spectral features, as archaeological remains do not have unique shape or spectral characteristics. The spectral anomaly characteristics(More)
This paper describes a fast procedure for evaluating asphalt pavement surface defects using airborne emissivity data. To develop this procedure, we used airborne multispectral emissivity data covering an urban test area close to Venice (Italy).For this study, we first identify and select the roads' asphalt pavements on Multispectral Infrared Visible Imaging(More)
The ISTIMES project, funded by the European Commission in the frame of a joint Call "ICT and Security" of the Seventh Framework Programme, is presented and preliminary research results are discussed. The main objective of the ISTIMES project is to design, assess and promote an Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)-based system, exploiting(More)
In this paper, we present the results of a hyperspectral airborne and in situ campaign in Montenegro aimed at individuating and monitoring two hazardous materials. They are the residues of the bauxite processing, i.e. red mud, and the asbestos fibers applied in the building materials. We perform laboratory analyses of asbestoscement, red mud and soil(More)
The paper shows the TASI-600 thermal hyperspectral sensor acquired by the Italian National Research Council — Institute of Methodologies for Environmental Analysis (CNR-IMAA) and describes some of the checks carried out during the commissioning phase. Furthermore, the first data acquired during the test-flight on hot spots of the volcanic island of(More)
We study the simplification of normal logic programs under the P-Stable semantics, with respect to the notions of equivalence, using many of the transformation rules found in literature in the context of Answer Set Programming (ASP). A schema for the implementation of P-Stable semantics is provided using two well known open source tools: Lparse and Minisat.(More)
The inversion of canopy reflectance models is widely used for the retrieval of vegetation properties from remote sensing. However the accuracy of the estimates depends on a range of factors, most notably the realism with which the canopy is represented by the models and the possibility of introducing a priori knowledge on canopy characteristics to constrain(More)
