Large-Scale Detection and Tracking of Aircraft from Satellite Images

Abstract

In this paper a distributed system for detecting and tracking commercial aircraft from medium resolution synthetic satellite images is presented. Discussion consisting of the system’s Apache Spark distributed architecture, correlation-based template matching, heuristic-based tracking, and evaluation of the system’s Standalone, Cluster, and Cloud modes of operation are covered before concluding with future work. 3,610 more words

Tracing polygon features from a google satellite image and uploading them to GPS receiver using DNRGPS

Overview
Our previous post dealt with a similar process but instead of polygons we were uploading routes. This post will demonstrate how polygon or area features can be digitally traced out, or to use the technical-digitized, from a Google satellite image in Google earth, saved as KML and then uploaded and stored as tracks in a GPS receiver. 324 more words
