Geoscience and Remote Sensing

This dataset contains aerial images acquired with a medium format digital camera and point clouds collected using an airborne laser scanning (ALS) unit, as well as ground control points and direct georeferencing data. The flights were performed in 2014 over an urban area in Presidente Prudente, State of São Paulo, Brazil, using different flight heights. These flights covered several features of interest for research, including buildings of different sizes and roof materials, roads and vegetation.

    This study deals with derivation of an exact expressions for the current distribution and the input impedance of a circular loop antenna over a lossy half-space. the analysis is based on the image method, the direct integration of the vector potential, and the spherical function expansion. the results for the current distribution of this study are in very good agreement with those corresponding results available in the literature, which checks the correctness of formulations of the study.

    In tropical/subtropical regions, the favorable climate associated with the use of agricultural technologies, such as no-tillage, minimum cultivation, irrigation, early varieties, desiccants, flowering inducing and crop rotation, makes agriculture highly dynamic. In this paper, we present the Campo Verde agricultural database. The purpose of creating and sharing these data is to foster advancement of remote sensing technology in areas of tropical agriculture, primarily the development and testing of methods for crop recognition and agricultural mapping.

    Synthetic Aperture Radar is a monitoring solution which is especially well fitted to maritime surveillance. The large swath widths, time-independent, weather resistant observations can be very useful for the detection of ships typically invisible to other forms of monitoring. A dataset which contains 43 Sentinel-1 Extended Wide Swath images and 3 RADARSAT-2 ScanSAR Narrow images between the 6th October 2014 to the 22 July 2015 is described and presented here.
