Buried Objects Segmentation and Detection in GPR B Scan Images

  title={Buried Objects Segmentation and Detection in GPR B Scan Images},
  author={Gozde Altin and A. Dolma},
Identification of buried objects through Ground Penetrating Radar B scan (GPR-B) images needs high computational techniques and long processing time due to curve fitting or pattern recognition methods. In this study, an efficient and fast recognition system is proposed for detection of buried objects region. Previously, GPR-B scan images of objects with different shapes in various depths were obtained by using gprMax simulation program. The detection process is categorized into four steps. The… Expand


A comparison of segmentation techniques for target extraction in ground-penetrating radar data
In a typical GPR survey, only a small fraction of the collected data actually represent usefuldata (i.e. target data), whereas the majority of the data is considered redundant. The first of theExpand
Neural detection of pipe signatures in ground penetrating radar images
A processing chain for the spatial analysis of the data recorded by a ground penetrating radar (GPR) is presented. In particular, the detection and localization of pipes is implemented by exploitingExpand

This work presents the development of an advanced image analysis technique capable of locating buried objects by ground‐penetrating radar (GPR) images. The technique requires only a small amount ofExpand
3-D radar imaging of buried utilities by features estimation of hyperbolic diffraction patterns in radar scans
The reliable estimation of buried utilities positions has been exploited with a tracking algorithm to reconstruct a 3D topographic mapping of the investigated site and it is much improved the difficult and time consuming task of the human operator to decide the buried utility path. Expand
Two fast buried pipe detection schemes in Ground Penetrating Radar images
In this paper two fast detection schemes for Ground Penetrating Radar data analysis are presented. Both processing chains are able to detect small underground targets (usually pipes) by recognizingExpand

Detection of linear objects in GPR data
A semi-automatic approach to the detection of linear scattering objects in geo-radar data sets, based on the 3D radon transform, which proved robust and reliable even in the presence of data affected by heavy noise, artifacts and other undesired scattering objects. Expand
