Super resolution image reconstruction method refers to image processing algorithms that produce a high resolution(HR) image from observed several low resolution(LR) images of the same scene. This method has proven to be useful in many practical cases where multiple frames of the same scene can be obtained, such as satellite imaging, video surveillance, video enhancement and restoration, digital mosaicking, and medical imaging. In this paper, we applied the super resolution reconstruction method in spatial domain to video sequences. Test images are adjacently sampled images from continuous video sequences and are overlapped at high rate. We constructed the observation model between the HR images and LR images applied with the Maximum A Posteriori(MAP) reconstruction method which is one of the major methods in the super resolution grid construction. Based on the MAP method, we reconstructed high resolution images from low resolution images and compared the results with those from other known interpolation methods.

Vector data sets (e.g. maps) are currently major sources of displaying, querying, and identifying locations of spatial features in a variety of applications. Especially in mobile environment, the needs for using spatial data is increasing, and the relative large size of vector maps need to be smaller. Recently, there have been several studies about vector map compression. There was clustering-based compression method with novel encoding/decoding scheme. However, precedent studies did not consider that spatial data have to be updated periodically. This paper explores the problem of existing clustering-based compression method. We propose an adaptive approximation method that is capable of handling data updates as well as reducing error levels. Experimental evaluation showed that when an updated event occurred the proposed adaptive approximation method showed enhanced positional accuracy compared with simple cluster based compression method.

In North Korea, there has been the considerable loss of human lives every year due to the deficiency of foods. Thus, in order to reduce such damages, a research project should be launched to provide various information for cooperation with North Korean government, and to develop proper agricultural information management system. Therefore, this research is mainly to develop North Korean Agricultural Information Management System (NKAIMS), which can collect, manage and analyze agricultural information and water resources utilization status of North Korea, and further support to make relevant decisions and establish the agricultural land-use plans. This research has three phases. The major outcome of the first phase is collecting the agricultural and water resources utilization data such as soils, rivers, streams, collective farms, etc., designing and building database, and developing integrated management system considering the users' requirements. The main work of the second phase is improving and reinforcing database such as adding the information of dams, land-over data, bridges, tunnels, satellite images, etc., inspecting and renewing such as importing detail attribute information of reservoirs, and improving system for more conveniently using. The third phase will be to supplement more useful functions such as statistic analysis, continually inspecting and improving database, and developing web-based system. The product of this research supports collecting and analyzing relevant data to facilitate easier agricultural activities and support effective decision making for food production in the preparation of unification. Moreover, through designing database considering sharing information and system expendability, it can support systematic data usability of agricultural information and save cost for data management.
Accuracy Analysis of Image Orientation Technique and Direct Georeferencing Technique

Mobile Mapping Systems are effective systems to acquire the position and image data using vehicle equipped with the GPS (Global Positioning System), IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), and CCD camera. They are used in various fields of road facility management, map update, and etc. In the general photogrammetry such as aerial photogrammetry, GCP (Ground Control Point)s are needed to compute the image exterior orientation elements (the position and attitude of camera). These points are measured by field survey at the time of data acquisition. But it costs much time and money. Moreover, it is not possible to make sufficient GCP as much as we want. However Mobile Mapping Systems are more efficient both in time and money because they can obtain the position and attitude of camera at the time of photographing. That is, Image Orientation Technique must use GCP to compute the image exterior orientation elements, but on the other hand Direct Georeferencing can directly compute the image exterior orientation elements by GPS/INS. In this paper, we analyze about the positional accuracy comparison of ground point using the Image Orientation Technique and Direct Georeferencing Technique.
Comparative Study on Advanced NSDIs for the Future NGIS Implementation in Korea

Journal of Korea Spatial Information Society, volume 13, issue 4, 2005, Pages 381~391
The NSDI concept has changed with the development of the NSDI. While the NSDI was initially established as a separate entity, recently more attention has been given to the SDI hierarchy, from a local level to a global level. As an advanced NSDI, the USA, the UK and Canada emphasize more on better citizen services through an e-Government GIS portal such as the USA's Geospatial One-Stop. This study hypothesizes that the characteristics of NSDIs can be different from each nation in terms of vision, structure, evolution stages and a degree of integration with the e-Government. Rather than to describe differences just fur comparison, more characteristics of NSDIs are identified and the comparisons are developed as recommendations for the future NGIS(National Geographic Information System) in Korea.

Due to the development of the network and Internet, it is easy to copy and spread digital data. These data has the advantage of being able to be copy without loss. However, this has generated a problem over copyright. The problem occurred in GIS, too. Although GIS data acquisition is the major cost there is insufficient effort made to protect copyright. For this reason watermarking could be a good method to guarantee owner's copyright. This paper will explain watermarking, and show an overview of watermarking studies connecting image and vector data.
