Master of Science Qinghui Liu will on 8 December at 12.15 publically defence his thesis for the PhD degree in Science.

Title of the PhD thesis:

«Advancing Land Cover Mapping in Remote Sensing with Deep Learning»

Popular scientific abstract:

Automatic mapping of land cover in remote sensing data plays an increasingly significant role in several earth observation (EO) applications, such as sustainable development, autonomous agriculture, and urban planning. Due to the complexity of the real ground surface and environment, accurate classification of land cover types is facing many challenges. This thesis provides novel deep learning-based solutions to land cover mapping challenges such as how to deal with intricate objects and imbalanced classes in multi-spectral and high-spatial resolution remote sensing data.

The thesis is published and available in Munin.
