cross modal retrieval; aerial images; aerial sketches; deep learning

WITH the advancement in sensor technology, huge amounts of data are being collected from various satellites. Hence, the task of target-based data retrieval and acquisition has become exceedingly challenging. Existing satellites essentially scan a vast overlapping region of the Earth using various sensing techniques, like multi-spectral, hyperspectral, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), video, and compressed sensing, to name a few.
