Applications of remote sensing (RS) data cover several fields such as: cartography, surveillance, land-use planning, archaeology, environmental studies, resources management, etc. However, the amount of RS data has grown considerably due to the increase of aerial and satellite sensors. With this continuous increase, the necessity of having automated tools for the interpretation and analysis of RS big data is clearly obvious. The manual interpretation becomes a time consuming and expensive task…
