  • Automated vector-vector and vector-imagery geospatial conflation 

    Song, Wenbo (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    With the rapid advance of geospatial technologies, the availability of geospatial data from multiple sources has increased dramatically. Integration of multi-source geospatial data can provide insights and capabilities not ...
  • Automatic detection of explosive devices in infrared imagery using texture with adaptive background mixture models 

    Spain, Christopher (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    Infrared cameras can be used to image unpaved roads containing buried explosive hazards where detection relies upon differences between settled and disturbed soil in addition to thermal emissivity. Used is a variation of ...
  • Automatic explosive hazard detection in FL-LWIR and FL-GPR data 

    Stone, Kevin E. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    [ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Detection of land mines and other buried explosive hazards, has been, and continues to be, a serious issue for military and civilian organizations. A ...
  • Clustering in relational data and ontologies 

    Havens, Timothy C., 1976- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    This dissertation studies the problem of clustering objects represented by relational data. This is a pertinent problem as many real-world data sets can only be represented by relational data for which object-based clustering ...
  • Combining activities of daily living and scene understanding for continuous assessment of behavior patterns using depth data 

    Banerjee, Tanvi (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2014)
    [ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Research has shown the importance of monitoring behavior patterns of older adults over extended time periods to detect and deviations. These deviations ...
  • Estimation and tracking of elder activity levels for health event prediction 

    Harvey, Nicholas M. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    [ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Significant declines in quality of life for elders in assisted living communities are typically triggered by health events. Given the necessary ...
  • An evolutionary framework for matching geospatial object configurations 

    Buck, Andrew R. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    This thesis presents a framework for modeling and comparing the spatial configuration of sets containing two-dimensional geospatial objects. This situation can arise in the conflation of a hand or machine drafted map to a ...
  • Experimental Study of Random Projections Below the JL Limit 

    Ye, Xiuyi (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
    Random projection is a method used to reduce dimensionality of desired objects with pair-wise distances preserved at a relatively high probability. The mathematical theory behind this is called the Johnson-Lindenstrauss ...
  • The family of sequential possibilistic one-mean clustering algorithms 

    Wu, Wenlong (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
    [ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] The possibilistic c-means (PCM) was developed as an extension of the fuzzy c-means (FCM) clustering algorithm by abandoning the membership sum-to-one ...
  • Linguistic summarization of human activity 

    Anderson, Derek T., 1979- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    The thesis advanced herein is that linguistic summarization is essential for the reliable succinct modeling and inference of human activity. It is also asserted that the inherent and unavoidable uncertainty is linguistic ...
  • A system for change detection and human recognition in voxel space using stereo vision 

    Luke, Robert H., 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    Image space change detection algorithms do not adequately address the complexities in real-world dynamic environments. With few exceptions, these algorithms rely on pixel-level information to detect proper foreground change. ...
  • Textual summarization of data using linguistic protoform summaries 

    Jain, Akshay (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2015)
    With the unseen quantities of data being generated in all walks of life, varying from social media to health domain, introduction of new techniques in order to better understand this information content is imperative. ...
  • Unstructured road detection in color imagery for the purpose of the automatic detection of explosive devices 

    Lewis, David Barclay (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    This thesis proposes a method for segmenting an unstructured dirt road in color space images using color and texture analysis. A support vector machine (SVM), or a Random Forest classifier is trained on samples of on and ...
  • Visual recognition using hybrid camera 

    Tang, Shuai (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
    Visual recognition is an exciting but difficult task. Recent dramatic advance in compute vision technology has made some promising progress. For example, the launch of hybrid camera provides both RGB and depth information ...
  • Walk detection using pulse-Doppler radar 

    Phillips, Calvin E., II (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    Seniors increasingly live more independent lifestyles. This can come with certain safety hazards including deteriorating health, and major injuries from falling. A factor that has been researched and observed to have a ...
