The Institute of Geography held a workshop on the study of the Caspian Sea 2024-06-10 17:33:00 / IMPORTANT EVENTS

The Institute of Geography named after acad. H.Aliyev of the MSE AR once again held a seminar with the participation of Professor Aliakbar Rasouli, a lecturer at the Australian Macquarie University.

The seminar "On the detection of changes in the Caspian Sea by processing LANDSAT images based on OBIA methods using the example of GIL Island" was attended by doctoral students and dissertations.

During the OBIA workshop, beginners and intermediate users learned the latest eCognition software.

A variety of exciting new tools and features were offering that could streamline existing workflows and extend the doors for new types of satellite image analysis. The workshop presented revolutionary object-based Sentinel-2 imagery segmentation and classification methods that remove all previous rasterization steps and provide users with a pre-trained model to execute on their data. In addition, a few indexing tools and built fuzzy algorithms and features were modernized to automate the calculating accuracy of any classification methods.

In detail, the workshop aimed to teach how to operate the OBIA" algorithms within the Trimble eCognition software with desired mitigation.

For example, professional environmentalists will learn the ISODATA (Iterative Self-Organizing Data Analysis Techniques) approach and create a single raster digital output with pixel values corresponding to the Caspian Sea coastline and its island's changes.

On future occasions, more advanced workshops might be planned.
