New Publication @ Heritage

A new publication was released earlier today by the Heritage MDPI journal. The joint publication of A. Agapiou and D. Skarlatos is entitled as “Geomatic Sensors for Heritage Documentation: A Meta-Analysis of the Scientific Literature”. Abstract: This review paper aims to provide a meta-analysis of the scientific literature for heritage documentation and monitoring using geo-information sensors. The study initially introduces the main types of geomatic sensors that are nowadays widely used for heritage studies. Although the list provided here is not...

MSc Students re-use ENGINEER Summer School Data

MSc students enrolled at the “Geoinformatics and Earth Observation” Master Programme of the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics at CUT, are elaborating low altitude drone RGB images captured as part of the first summer school of the ENGINEER project. This exercise is part of the MSc course GEO 554 “Digital Imaging, Photogrammetry & Computer Vision”, directed by Prof. Dimitrios Skarlatos. The purpose is to familiarize students with advance photogrammetric skills and relevant software for air triangulation and orthophoto production...

Future analysis methodology for treating imbalanced data

Paper published @ Drones

A joint paper from Argyro Argyrou has been published at Drones MDPI. Abstract: Recent improvements in low-altitude remote sensors and image processing analysis can be utilised to support archaeological research. Over the last decade, the increased use of remote sensing sensors and their products for archaeological science and cultural heritage studies has been reported in the literature. Therefore, different spatial and spectral analysis datasets have been applied to recognise archaeological remains or map environmental changes over time. Recently, more thorough object...
