VTT TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTRE OF FINLAND Preprocessing • Objective • Carry out image calibration to produce radiometrically and geometrically corrected images. • Pre-processing includes data unpacking and converions for different instruments. • Success criteria • Pre-processing required in each prototype application is done with the produced software. • Relative radiometric accuracy ± 15 -30% (depending on the band absolute reflectance) with existing measurement data, and average geometric error less than one pixel are achieved.
VTT TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTRE OF FINLAND Disaster monitoring • Objective • To develop analysis methods and procedure to provide timely information of the disaster at different phases, mitigation, warning, response, and recovery. • The prototype system is focused on detection of topographic changes by landslide and extract its impact area using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) derived DEM of before and after disaster. • As the end product, an image data with damaged area information is published through internet and delivered to multi-level users on appropriate devices. • Success criteria • The end user takes the system for test operation and is content with it. • The response time and accuracy of the system (simulated in optimum conditions) meets the requirements of the problem field.
VTT TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTRE OF FINLAND Forestry • Objective • To develop methods and software for producing forest resource maps of various regions in the world • To develop and implement the spectral bank concept • Success criteria • A system that utilizes the spectral banks in e. g. forest variable estimation is implemented and working. • Methods forest variable estimation are improved and corresponding software revised.
VTT TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTRE OF FINLAND Forest fire • Objective • To develope a tower based system for early warning of forest fires. • The system uses an imaging system based on several CMOS detector chips and an IR radiometer (or spectrometer) as input sensors. • Success criteria • Successful field tests of a hardware prototype of a tower based forest fire detection system on summer 2004 are carried out. • Image processing software for locating smoke clouds from background illumination with low false alarm rate is verified with the field test data. • The hardware and software of a tower based forest fire detection system is developed to such level that a product detailed design can be initiated.
VTT TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTRE OF FINLAND Maritime • Objective • To develop a prototype application for maritime users that is built on the framework components.

VTT TECHNICAL RESEARCH CENTRE OF FINLAND Traffic monitoring • Objective • To develop an automated image alignment procedure which enables object extraction from a time-series of images based on the changes observed • To develop an automated procedure, which identifies each traffic object (car, bus) in a series of consecutive images by its movement and outputs a vector specifying time, location and velocity • Success criteria • An image processing system can be tested in operational use by e. g. City of Helsinki. • An automated image alignment procedure, which outputs spatially equivalent images and enables the use of aerial photographs from various sources is developed. • Pattern recognition from the images and difference images can be done with an accuracy better than 80 % (the total number of each vehicle type).
