Scope and Topics
The volume and diversity of data is a major challenge to the existing data exploitation and dissemination approaches used by the various national agencies (e.g., ESA, NASA, NOAA) charged with extracting information from these data. With plans to enlarge the application areas, the challenge is increasingly going to be how to enlarge the usability of the millions of images being stored in archives and being collected in real-time for a larger and larger group of end-user applications (e.g., climate change, security, land use, weather).

The Earth Observation (EO) Image analyst needs to identify image elements of interest, find a model-based correspondence to the semantics assumed, and explain the observed scene. The new methods are necessary to help the human operator, in a separate interaction loop, to generate functions for the aggregation of the obtained image elements and add desired semantics. Also, such methods should suggest to the operator the semantic annotation of the data, supporting bodies of knowledge, and position the domain ontology. To deal with the challenge of recognition and understanding of the huge variability and diversity of land cover structures and objects, it is necessary to analyze all available sources of information including multi-temporal, multi-sensor EO imagery, in-situ information, maps, GIS or textual data. Thus, new specific techniques of Knowledge Bases, Image Information Mining, KDD and Visualization need to be integrated.

The workshop aims at soliciting contributions in the following or related topics:

› Heterogeneous data analysis
› Category discovery
› Efficient search based on dynamically generated data models
› Advanced DB techniques
› Image information integration with map or GIS-like information
› Bridging the semantic gap for EO applications
› "Spatialisation" of semantics, and ontologies for spatial data
› Fusion and enriching of EO images with, the image product metadata, Internet tagged resources, photography, text, maps, etc…
› Access (search engines) to large spatial data, distributed repositories
› Optimal IT system design (man-machine communication, information and knowledge share, optimal access to resources, etc...)
› Semantic catalogues for data bases indexing content
