Cloud Detection through Wavelet Transforms in Machine Learning and Deep Learning

07/10/2020 ∙ by Philippe Reiter, et al. ∙ 0

Cloud detection is a specialized application of image recognition and object detection using remotely sensed data. The task presents a number of challenges, including analyzing images obtained in visible, infrared and multi-spectral frequencies, usually without ground truth data for comparison. Moreover, machine learning and deep learning (MLDL) algorithms applied to this task are required to be computationally efficient, as they are typically deployed in low-power devices and called to operate in real-time. This paper explains Wavelet Transform (WT) theory, comparing it to more widely used image and signal processing transforms, and explores the use of WT as a powerful signal compressor and feature extractor for MLDL classifiers.
