Reanimating aerial images in real time for geospatial web applications

Abstract : Geovisualization has concentrated most work in displaying static data for a long time, progress have brought incredibly detailed visualizations offline but also in web browsers thanks to GPU access. Heavy textured meshes mixed with vectorial data are common representations for users now. Animation, on the other hand, is just at its beginning. As far as we know there are no current applications that integrate imaged-based dynamic visualization of many distinct objects at different scales. We propose a method generating dynamic representations for objects present in the aerial image that change appearance or position over time such as cars, water, boats, vegetation without the need for a user intervention. It offers a compelling experience, emphasizing object class differentiation. This research involves two main tasks. First to be able to extract object layers and direction using aerial images and land covers information in real time, and secondly to animate these objects realistically, combining computer vision and computer graphics domains.
