Mathematical Morphology in Geosciences and Geoinformatics
Mathematical morphology, founded by Georges Matheron and Jean Serra, has received wide attention in the last three decades. Mathematical morphology offers numerous original ideas, concepts, transformations and algorithms to deal with studies related to information retrieval, information analysis and reasoning, and spatiotemporal modeling of various phenomena and processes of relevance to geosciences. The topics for this session on Mathematical morphology in geosciences and geoinformatics include, but is not limited to, mathematical morphology in shape analysis and characterization; remotely sensed data processing and analysis; random spread modeling; filtering and segmentation; information retrieval, analysis and reasoning; quantitative spatial reasoning; Geographic Information Science (GISci).
