Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 99~111
A fuzzy logic based data integration was applied for geothermal potential mapping in Jeju Island. Several data sets, such as geological map, the density of drainage system, the distribution density of cinder cones, density of lineaments, aerial survey map for total magnetic intensity and total gamma ray, were collected as thematic map for the integration. Fuzzy membership function for all thematic maps were compared to the locations of the spa, which were used as ground-truth control points. The older geology, the lower density of drainage, cinder cones and lineaments, and the lower intensity of magnetic and gamma ray were showed the higher fuzzy membership function values, respectively. After integrating all thematic maps, the results of gamma operator with the gamma value of 0.75 was the highest success rate, and new geothermal potential zone is prospected in western north part of Jeju Island.

Oceanographic measurements from Ieodo Ocean Research Station and its vicinity were compared for assessment and mutually adjusted with satellite data. From the Topex/Poseidon and ERS-1/2 radar altimeter and scatterometer data, sea surface height, wind speed and direction were extracted and analyzed. Shipborne wind direction data acquired in June 1995 show good coherence with the satellite data, while sea surface height and wind speed show differences, possibly resulting from the distance between the measurement points. This can be improved by analyzing more satellite data or using other available shipborne data. The recent 3 months of Ieodo Station data between December 2004 and February 2005 were also analyzed and compared with the satellite data. The Ieodo Station data were found to have considerable gaps during the period as well as seriously biased particular when the data were averaged with some abnormal data. The Ieodo Station and satellite data were then mutually adjusted on the basis of their statistics. Ieodo Station oceanographic measurements are very efficient for ground-frothing of satellite data because they are stationary and the station is located far from the coast. On the other hand, the satellite measurements are the only data to fill up gaps and adjust biases of the Ieodo Station data.

Texture imaging, which means texture image creation by co-occurrence relation, has been known as one of the useful image analysis methodologies. For this purpose, most commercial remote sensing software provides texture analysis function named GLCM (Grey Level Co-occurrence Matrix). In this study, texture-imaging program based on GLCM algorithm is newly implemented. As well, texture imaging modules for GLDV (Grey Level Difference Vector) are contained in this program. As for GLCM/GLDV Texture imaging parameters, it composed of six types of second order texture functions such as Homogeneity, Dissimilarity, Energy, Entropy, Angular Second Moment, and Contrast. As for co-occurrence directionality in GLCM/GLDV, two direction modes such as Omni-mode and Circular mode newly implemented in this program are provided with basic eight-direction mode. Omni-mode is to compute all direction to avoid directionality complexity in the practical level, and circular direction is to compute texture parameters by circular direction surrounding a target pixel in a kernel. At the second phase of this study, some case studies with artificial image and actual satellite imagery are carried out to analyze texture images in different parameters and modes by correlation matrix analysis. It is concluded that selection of texture parameters and modes is the critical issues in an application based on texture image fusion.

RPC(Rational Polynomial Camera) models have become the replacement model of choice for a number of high resolution satellite imagery providers. RPCs(Rational Polynomial Coefficients) provide a compact accurate representation of the ground to image geometry, allowing users to perform full photogrammetric processing of satellite imagery including block adjustment, 3D feature extraction and orthorectification. This paper presents an algorithm for 3D feature extraction using downhill simpler method which requires only function evaluations, not derivatives. The algorithm was implemented as an executable software program and tested using stereo IKONOS images of Seoul city. The results showed that the proposed algorithm was fast and accurate enough to be used as a practical method for the 3D feature extraction from stereo images with RPCs.

To improve the accuracy of land-cover discrimination in SAB data classification, this paper presents a methodology that includes feature extraction and fusion steps with multi-temporal SAR data. Three features including average backscattering coefficient, temporal variability and coherence are extracted from multi-temporal SAR data by considering the temporal behaviors of backscattering characteristics of SAR sensors. Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence(D-S theory) and fuzzy logic are applied to effectively integrate those features. Especially, a feature-driven heuristic approach to mass function assignment in D-S theory is applied and various fuzzy combination operators are tested in fuzzy logic fusion. As experimental results on a multi-temporal Radarsat-1 data set, the features considered in this paper could provide complementary information and thus effectively discriminated water, paddy and urban areas. However, it was difficult to discriminate forest and dry fields. From an information fusion methodological point of view, the D-S theory and fuzzy combination operators except the fuzzy Max and Algebraic Sum operators showed similar land-cover accuracy statistics.

Korean Journal of Remote Sensing, volume 21, issue 2, 2005, Pages 163~171
I have developed a processor for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) raw data compression using range-doppler algorithm for educational purpose. The program realized a generic SAR focusing algorithm so that it can deal with any SAR system if the specification is known. It can run efficiently on a low-cost computer by selecting minimum size out of a whole dataset, and can produce intermediate images during the process. Especially, the program is designed for educational purpose in such a way that Doppler centroid and azimuth ambiguity can be determined graphically by the user. By distributing the source code and the algorithm to public, I intend to maximize the educational effect on understanding and utilizing SAR data. This paper introduces the principle of SAR focusing algorithm embedded on the eSAR processor and shows an example of data processing using ERS-1 raw data.
