  1. Learning traffic camera locations using vehicle re-identification

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA201005

    In its effort to provide necessary intelligence and analysis, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) utilizes extensive traffic camera systems. However, the large amount of data overwhelms both analysts and existing processing methods. In order to provide a better understanding and reduce the search space for common problems such as target tracking, it is necessary to extract the camera ...
