Increasing the Segmentation Accuracy of Aerial Images with Dilated Spatial Pyramid Pooling

Manuel Eugenio Morocho-Cayamcela


This thesis addresses the environmental uncertainty in satellite images as a computer vision task using semantic image segmentation. We focus in the reduction of the error caused by the use of a single-environment models in wireless communications. We propose to use computer vision and image analysis to segment a geographical terrain in order to employ a specific propagation model in each segment of the link. Our computer vision architecture achieved a segmentation accuracy of 89.41%, 86.47%, and 87.37% in the urban, suburban, and rural classes, respectively. Results indicate that estimating propagation loss with our multi-environment model reduced the root mean square deviation (RMSD) with respect to two publicly available tracing datasets.
