  1. 1. Trade-offs between land conservation and agricultural production: Case study of the Spanish Lookout area and the Belize Maya Forest Reserve

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Sociologi

    Author : Tomas Castro Rojas; [2022]
    Keywords : LULUCF; agriculture; deforestation frontiers; remote sensing; biodiversity; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Habitat destruction (evidenced in land use change) represents one of the biggest threats to environmental resources and biodiversity. In the tropics, this threat is maximized as deforestation frontiers have expanded into natural ecosystems at increasing rates over the last decades for agricultural cropping and livestock husbandry.

  2. 2. A Deep Learning Based Approach to Object Recognition from LiDAR Data Along Swedish Railroads

    University essay from KTH/Fastigheter och byggande

    Author : Egil Morast; [2022]
    Keywords : Deep learning; DGCNN; LiDAR; Object recognition; Railroad; Automatisation; Sweden; Point cloud; Djupinlärning; DGCNN; LiDAR; Objektigenkänning; Järnväg; Automatisering; Sverige; Punktmoln;

    Abstract : Malfunction in the overhead contact line system is a common cause of disturbances in the train traffic in Sweden. Due to the preventive methods being inefficient, the Swedish Transport Administration has stated the need to develop the railroad maintenance services and has identified Artificial Intelligence (AI) as an important tool for this undertaking.

  3. 3. Influence of forest mires on wildfire : a landscape analysis of the 2014 Västmanland forest fire

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : Andreas Souropetsis; [2022]
    Keywords : Forest fire; Mires fuel composition; Aerial photo interpretation;

    Abstract : Forest fire is a major natural disturbance that influence forest ecosystem structure and composition at both the stand and landscape level. In boreal Fennoscandia fire frequency has been very low over the last c.150 years due to effective fire suppression, although occasionally high-intensity fires escape initial attack and grow big.

  4. 4. Damage Assessment of the 2022 Tongatapu Tsunami : With Remote Sensing

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : Milton Larsson; [2022]
    Keywords : remote sensing; land cover classification; Sentinel-1; Sentinel-2; change detection; change vector analysis;

    Abstract : The Island of Tongatapu, Tonga, was struck by a tsunami on January 15, 2022. Internet was cut off from the island, which made remote sensing a valuable tool for the assessment of damages. Through land cover classification, change vector analysis and log-ratio image differencing, damages caused by the tsunami were assessed remotely in this thesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of a Level-0 Geoprocessing Platform for a Multispectral Remote Sensing Payload

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner, marina system, flyg- och rymdteknik, rörelsemekanik

    Author : Sergio Santiago Bernabeu Peñalba; [2022]
    Keywords : Infrared imagery; VIS; NIR; LWIR; geoprocessor; geolocation; quaternions; Aistech Space; image processing; ORB; RANSAC; Sentinel; Landsat; Infraröda bilder; VIS; NIR; LWIR; geoprocessor; geolokalisering; kvarternioner; Aistech Space; bildbehandling; ORB; RANSAC; Sentinel; Landsat;

    Abstract : This thesis presented an overview of the development of a geolocating algorithm as part of a geoprocessor for raw satellite imagery. This algorithm was devised for and limited by the specifications of a state-of-the-art multispectral telescope designed by Aistech Space, hosted onboard the Guardian spacecraft, which will observe Earth through the visible, near infrared, and thermal infrared bands of the electromagnetic spectrum.
