3D Model-Integrated Automatic Change Detection

Earth is being imaged continuously using high-resolution (pixel-size <=1m) optical satellite, airborne, or even UAV sensors. However, due to technical issues, these abundant sources of images can not be efficiently combined and used to automatically monitor the urban area which is the most dynamic environment on the earth. The partner organization of this proposal has a patented technology to generate a high-fidelity 3D model of the earth; the academic participant of this project also has a patented technology to detect changes in urban environments utilizing the aforementioned different sources of images. This project aims to combine the two technologies and generate a breakthrough methodology to monitor urban areas with measurable accuracy automatically. The outcome of this project will be a novel software package that can be used for different applications including disaster management, defence, and urban management.
