Title (EN) INFORMATION EXTRACTION USING IMAGE DATA
(FR) EXTRACTION D'INFORMATIONS À L'AIDE DE DONNÉES D'IMAGE
Abstract:
(EN) Techniques for weather information extraction using image data are described herein. In accordance with the present disclosure, economical weather data collection devices may be installed in any places on the earth, and form a dense network of weather data collection devices. Preferably, these weather data collection devices include image capture components that may capture series of sequential images over time (i.e., image streams) from any particular locations. The disclosed techniques include extracting a sky portion from a series of time-sequenced images. The extracted sky portion may be used for determining cloud coverage, a sun track, and so on, thereby enabling to provide accurate weather forecast as well as other weather data mining abilities.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques d'extraction d'informations météorologiques à l'aide de données d'image. Selon la présente invention, des dispositifs de collecte de données météorologiques économiques peuvent être installés dans n'importe quel lieu sur Terre, et forment un réseau dense de dispositifs de collecte de données météorologiques. De préférence, lesits dispositifs de collecte de données météorologiques comprennent des éléments de capture d'image qui peuvent capturer une série d'images séquentielles au fil du temps (c'est-à-dire, des flux d'images) à partir d'emplacements quelconques. Les techniques décrites consistent à extraire une partie de ciel à partir d'une série d'images séquencées dans le temps. La partie de ciel extraite peut être utilisée pour déterminer une couverture nuageuse, une course du soleil, et ainsi de suite, ce qui permet de fournir des prévisions météorologiques précises, ainsi que d'autres capacités d'exploration de données météorologiques.
