    With complicated natural conditions, multiplicity of crop structure, small and dispersive distribution of parcel, the accuracy of images with moderate and lower resolution can't meet the acquisition of crop yield forecasting. With improvement of new sensors of high resolution, remote sensing imagery of high resolution can provide more abundant information such as texture, hue and so on. However, the current object-oriented classification approaches are not mature, which have too much thresholds to be set and more complicated and difficult to be used commonly. Therefore, combining QuickBird high spatial resolution satellite imagery with the field investigation data as mainly auxiliary information as well as using the pixel-oriented maximum likelihood method, crop planting area was obtained step by step, applying the principle of multi-scale information extraction,a test was set in Mianyang, Sichuan province.The result shows that the accuracy of crop classification is fairly exciting.

    Rapid urbanization has changed land surface properties and land-atmosphere interaction,which further may impact on the climate and environment.It is important for urban sustainability to timely and accurate monitor regional or global urbanization process.Currently,urban area in large scale could be derived from satellite images,and DMSP/OLS has already been widely used to detect global urbanization due to its time series.However,its saturation in urban area largely limited its further application.Therefore,an improved urban index (VANUI) was used to detect urbanization process in JING-JIN-JI area from 2001-2012 to examine its fitness in mega-city area,further provide reasonable information for urban planning and urban sustainability.Compared with the traditional night lights index,VANUI is indeed to improve the monitoring ability for urban center and reduce the influence of signal saturation on parameters derivation.The results showed that VANUI could catch the urbanization process that happened in JING-JIN-JI area during last decades.Spatial pattern of urban expansion from 2001-2012 indicated that the urban area of JING-JIN-JI was doubled from 2001-2012,and the fasted region about urbanization happened in Tangshan,Hebei Province.Linear trend was also detected in urban development by VANUI index from 2001-2012,and the most important increasing period showed in 2004-2007 and 2009-2012.

    For meeting the demand for large-scale agricultural monitoring system with remote sensing technology,extracting paddy rice information on the remote sensing image must be rapidly,precisely and reliable conducted.In this paper,paddy rice identification with SPOT-5 image was taken as an example on the 852 farm in Heilongjiang province of China.Firstly,the spectral characteristics of paddy rice and other six land-use types in this area were analyzed to find the possibility of extracting of paddy rice from the background.The results show it is difficult to distinguish paddy rice information from background on the SPOT-5 images because of complexity of spectrum and lack of band information.Secondly,taking those into account,characteristic bands for paddy rice extraction were proposed and merged into SPOT-5 images in order to increase spectral information and improve the separability.Thirdly,a simple model of decision tree was applied to extract paddy rice information.Finally,the results were checked by visual and statistica1 accuracy assessment.The results suggest that the model based on characteristic bands is simple and effective,and the accuracy by the model is much higher than that by the supervised classification method.However,some pixels in the neighborhood area between paddy rice and corn were misjudged.

    With the development of convolutional neural network technology, recent research has paid more attention to the improvement of accuracy and the improvement of semantic information. Mask R-CNN network is a further improved segmentation network of Faster R-CNN. It has a good segmentation effect in high-resolution remote sensing image feature recognition. However, since the convolutional neural network can only be trained and predicted with small tile images, there is a large semantic information error in the prediction results. Faced with this problem, this paper proposed a gap-repairing algorithm based on the defect of prediction result of convolutional neural network. The approach use overlapsize algorithm to improve the matching degree between the prediction result and the ground-truth result at first. Then fill the gap through the correlation function in the PostGIS database to repair the small tile, which can make it be spliced ??into a complete picture. The research and experiment results showed that the algorithm could improve the image semantic information well and has practicability.

    Satellite image fusion is always a focus in remote sensing field.According to data sources difference,image fusion can be divided into two broad categories:fusion of images using different sensors data and using same sensor data.Five recently proposed/modified fusion algorithms have been employed to test the fusion results of the two categories.The image pair,TM+ SPOT pan,was used to test fusion between different image sources,while the pair,IKONOS MS+ pan,was employed to test fusion between same sensor data.The study reveals that the overall results of fusion between same sensor data are better than those of fusion between different sensors image sources.The selected fusion algorithms have different performance in image fusion results between the two categories.The SVR transform is suitable for both categories of image fusion.It can greatly improve the spatial resolution,information quantity and clarity,but retain spectral information of the original multispectral image.The SFIM\|fused image has the highest spectral fidelity in both categories of image fusion,but has the lowest spatial frequency information gain.Although the MB transform can improve the spatial resolution of the original image,it generally failed to improve spectral fidelity,information quantity and clarity.The Ehlers transform is more suitable for image fusion between different sensors data while the WT is more applicable to image fusion between same sensor data.

    With the accelerating process of urbanization,the technology of Remote Sensing(RS) can supply the direct,accurate and synchronous information for the change detection of urban land use.Ontology is a definite description of conceptualization.It can be showed closer to cognitive model and easier to be understood and shared; it can be also operated by the computer's formal language to express a tangible goal in the field of the concept and its implication semantics.As a result,with the existed researches analyzed and learned,〖JP3〗the thought of Ontology and Semantic are introduced to the expression of the RS images.Moreover,semantic model and interpretation framework of RS images for urban field based on Ontology are built up in this paper.Then the semantic model in the processing procedure of urban RS images was formed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of RS technology in urban field.

    In process of observing ocean wave with nautical radar,the roughness of offing will be changed for emergence of rainfall.So the intensity of echo signal which received from radar will be influenced.In this paper an analyzing and processing method is proposed for rainfall observation data in wave monitoring system by nautical radar.Firstly the statistic characteristic- mean value and variation coefficient of radar echo image are used as classifying criterion to distinguish rainfall and non-rainfall.Then the median filtering algorithm is approached to dealing with rainfall observation data in order to reduce the influence from rainfall.The experimental results indicate that the algorithm proposed in this paper has a good robustness and general performance.
