A REMOTE SENSING DERIVED DATA SET OF 100 MILLION INDIVIDUAL TREE CROWNS FOR THE NATIONAL ECOLOGICAL OBSERVATORY NETWORK

Abstract: Forests provide biodiversity, ecosystem, and economic services. Information on individual trees is important for understanding forest ecosystems but obtaining individual-level data at broad scales is challenging due to the costs and logistics of data collection. While advances in remote… Read More

OUTLIER DETECTION THROUGH NULL SPACE ANALYSIS OF NEURAL NETWORKS

Abstract: Many machine learning classification systems lack competency awareness. Specifically, many systems lack the ability to identify when outliers (e.g., samples that are distinct from and not represented in the training data distribution) are being presented to the system. The… Read More

Master’s Defenses!

Congratulations to our labmates, Hudanyun Sheng and Princess Lyons, for successful Master’s defenses!   Hudanyun conducted work on “Switchgrass Genotype Classification using Hyperspectral Imagery”, while Princess investigated  “Anomaly and Target Detection in Synthetic Aperture Sonar”. Great job, you two!

Cross-site learning in deep learning RGB tree crown detection

Abstract: Tree detection is a fundamental task in remote sensing for forestry and ecosystem ecology applications. While many individual tree segmentation algorithms have been proposed, the development and testing of these algorithms is typically site specific, with few methods evaluated… Read More

Congratualtions to Guohao Yu for a Successful Proposal Defense!

Congratulations to our labmate Guahao Yu for successfully defending his research proposal!  Defending an oral research proposal is the second of four milestones to completing a Ph.D. at the University of Florida.  Guohao is planning to advance image segmentation techniques… Read More
