A Generic Framework for Library-based Mapping
of Urban Areas
How we mostly use spectral libraries
(and why it's a problem ...)
This is what happens now: we all work on our little image
spend a lot of time and effort to get suitable
finally we get that library
make something with it
and then stop using the library altogether.
WHAT A WASTE!!!
Obviously this is very inefficient. On the one hand we are doing the same work over and over again, even though it can often be avoided. On the other hand, there are those who don't have the skills or data access to make those libraries, but could definitely use them for their applications.
On the next page we explain our proposed approach to working with spectral libraries.
