International Journal of Image Mining (IJIM), Vol. 3, No. 2, 2018

Abstract: Post-processing schemes are crucial for object detection algorithms to improve the performance of detection in wide-area aerial imagery. We select appropriate parameters for three algorithms (variational minimax optimisation (Saha and Ray, 2009), feature density estimation (Gleason et al., 2011) and Zheng's scheme by morphological filtering (Zheng et al., 2013)) to achieve the highest average F-score on random sample frames, and then follow the same procedure to implement five post-processing schemes on each algorithm. Two low-resolution aerial videos are used as our datasets to compare automatic detection results with the ground truth objects on each frame. The performance analysis of post-processing schemes on each algorithm are presented under two sets of evaluation metrics.
