Work­ing field:

Dur­ing the last dec­ade, a huge num­ber of earth obser­va­tion (EO) satel­lites with optical and Syn­thetic Aper­ture Radar sensors onboard have been launchend and advances in satel­lite sys­tems have increased the amount, vari­ety and spa­tial/spec­tral res­ol­u­tion of EO data. This has led to massive EO data archives with huge amount of remote sens­ing (SR) images, from which min­ing and retriev­ing use­ful inform­a­tion are chal­len­ging. In view of that, con­tent based image retrieval (CBIR) has attrac­ted great atten­tion in the RS com­munity. The goal of this PhD is to develop deep hash­ing archi­tec­tures and related tools for accur­ate and scal­able SAR image search and retrieval in large archives. PhD thesis is pos­sible.
