Fine Registration of Historical Aerial Images and Present-Day Satellite Images

Status: open
Supervisor: Sebastian Zambanini

Problem Statementremote

In the DeVisOr project, historical aerial images are registered to modern satellite images for the purpose of geo-referencing. However, feature based registrations only deliver coarse registration that needs to be refined for improved accuracy.


The goal of this work is to investigate the application of fine registration techniques for aligning historical aerial images with modern satellite images.
