NightVision: Generating Nighttime Satellite Imagery from Infra-Red Observations

11/13/2020 ∙ by Paula Harder, et al. ∙ 4

The recent explosion in applications of machine learning to satellite imagery often rely on visible images and therefore suffer from a lack of data during the night. The gap can be filled by employing available infra-red observations to generate visible images. This work presents how deep learning can be applied successfully to create those images by using U-Net based architectures. The proposed methods show promising results, achieving a structural similarity index (SSIM) up to 86% on an independent test set and providing visually convincing output images, generated from infra-red observations.
