Title Image Vegetation Index through a Cycle Generative Adversarial Network Type Conference Article
Year 2019 Publication Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshops (CVPR 2019); Long Beach, California, United States Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 1014-1021
Keywords
Abstract This paper proposes a novel approach to estimate the

Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) just from

an RGB image. The NDVI values are obtained by using

images from the visible spectral band together with a synthetic near infrared image obtained by a cycled GAN. The

cycled GAN network is able to obtain a NIR image from

a given gray scale image. It is trained by using unpaired

set of gray scale and NIR images by using a U-net architecture and a multiple loss function (gray scale images are

obtained from the provided RGB images). Then, the NIR

image estimated with the proposed cycle generative adversarial network is used to compute the NDVI index. Experimental results are provided showing the validity of the proposed approach. Additionally, comparisons with previous

approaches are also provided.

Title Deep Learning based Single Image Dehazing Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication 14th IEEE Workshop on Perception Beyond the Visible Spectrum – In conjunction with CVPR 2018. Salt Lake City, Utah. USA Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords
Abstract This paper proposes a novel approach to remove haze

degradations in RGB images using a stacked conditional

Generative Adversarial Network (GAN). It employs a triplet

of GAN to remove the haze on each color channel independently.

A multiple loss functions scheme, applied over a

conditional probabilistic model, is proposed. The proposed

GAN architecture learns to remove the haze, using as conditioned

entrance, the images with haze from which the clear

images will be obtained. Such formulation ensures a fast

model training convergence and a homogeneous model generalization.

Experiments showed that the proposed method

generates high-quality clear images.

Title Vegetation Index Estimation from Monospectral Images Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication 15th International Conference, Image Analysis and Recognition (ICIAR 2018), Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal. Lecture Notes in Computer Science Abbreviated Journal
Volume 10882 Issue Pages 353-362
Keywords
Abstract This paper proposes a novel approach to estimate Normalized

Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) from just the red channel of

a RGB image. The NDVI index is defined as the ratio of the difference

of the red and infrared radiances over their sum. In other words, information

from the red channel of a RGB image and the corresponding

infrared spectral band are required for its computation. In the current

work the NDVI index is estimated just from the red channel by training a

Conditional Generative Adversarial Network (CGAN). The architecture

proposed for the generative network consists of a single level structure,

which combines at the final layer results from convolutional operations

together with the given red channel with Gaussian noise to enhance

details, resulting in a sharp NDVI image. Then, the discriminative model

estimates the probability that the NDVI generated index came from the

training dataset, rather than the index automatically generated. Experimental

results with a large set of real images are provided showing that

a Conditional GAN single level model represents an acceptable approach

to estimate NDVI index.

Title Adaptive Harris Corners Detector Evaluated with Cross-Spectral Images Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication International Conference on Information Technology & Systems (ICITS 2018). ICITS 2018. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing Abbreviated Journal
Volume 721 Issue Pages
Keywords
Abstract This paper proposes a novel approach to use cross-spectral

images to achieve a better performance with the proposed Adaptive Harris

corner detector comparing its obtained results with those achieved

with images of the visible spectra. The images of urban, field, old-building

and country category were used for the experiments, given the variety of

the textures present in these images, with which the complexity of the

proposal is much more challenging for its verification. It is a new scope,

which means improving the detection of characteristic points using crossspectral

images (NIR, G, B) and applying pruning techniques, the combination

of channels for this fusion is the one that generates the largest

variance based on the intensity of the merged pixels, therefore, it is that

which maximizes the entropy in the resulting Cross-spectral images.

Harris is one of the most widely used corner detection algorithm, so

any improvement in its efficiency is an important contribution in the

field of computer vision. The experiments conclude that the inclusion of

a (NIR) channel in the image as a result of the combination of the spectra,

greatly improves the corner detection due to better entropy of the

resulting image after the fusion, Therefore the fusion process applied to

the images improves the results obtained in subsequent processes such as

identification of objects or patterns, classification and/or segmentation.

Title Cross-spectral image dehaze through a dense stacked conditional GAN based approach. Type Conference Article
Year 2018 Publication 14th IEEE International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems (SITIS 2018) Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 358-364
Keywords
Abstract This paper proposes a novel approach to remove haze from RGB images using a near infrared images based on a dense stacked conditional Generative Adversarial Network (CGAN). The architecture of the deep network implemented receives, besides the images with haze, its corresponding image in the near infrared spectrum, which serve to accelerate the learning process of the details of the characteristics of the images. The model uses a triplet layer that allows the independence learning of each channel of the visible spectrum image to remove the haze on each color channel separately. A multiple loss function scheme is proposed, which ensures balanced learning between the colors and the structure of the images. Experimental results have shown that the proposed method effectively removes the haze from the images. Additionally, the proposed approach is compared with a state of the art approach showing better results.
