The project DeVisOR – ‘Detection and Visualization of Unexploded Ordnance Risks’ – is concerned with the analysis of historic air photos (images) with the overall goal of detecting unexploded bombs. This work is performed by the Luftbilddatenbank Dr. Carls GmbH, Vienna. In the DeVisOR project interactive software tools are developed that will support the work of the LBDB employees. These tools incorporate new methods belonging to the fields of Computer Vision and Visual Analytics.
