IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society Sponsors “Data Fusion Contest”

From Fabio Pacifici, chair of the Data Fusion Technical Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), comes word that the organization is hosting the 2012 IEEE GRSS Data Fusion Contest.

Mr. Pacifici writes:

This year the Contest is designed to investigate the potential of multi-modal/multi-temporal fusion of very high spatial resolution imagery. Three data sets of three different types (optical, SAR, and LIDAR) over downtown San Francisco are made freely available by DigitalGlobe, Astrium Services, and USGS. They will include very high spatial resolution QuickBird, WorldView-2, TerraSAR-X, and LIDAR imagery. Optical and SAR data sets will be composed of a total of eight images from two acquisition times in 2007 and 2011.

To enter the contest, participants are required to submit a manuscript on a research topic of their own choosing. Papers should describe in detail the problem addressed, the method used, and the final result.

Deadline: May 1, 2012.

The winning teams will be eligible to win up to $800 and an open access publication on an IEEE GRSS Journal ($3,000 value). More than 500 users from universities and corporations across the globe have registered in just over a month.

More information is available at the contest website
