Comprehensive survey of deep learning in remote sensing: theories, tools, and challenges for the community

John E. Ball, Derek T. Anderson, Chee Seng Chan
2017 Journal of Applied Remote Sensing  
Herein, we provide the most comprehensive survey of state-of-the-art RS DL research. We also review recent new developments in the DL field that can be used in DL for RS.  ...  Whereas remote sensing (RS) possesses a number of unique challenges, primarily related to sensors and applications, inevitably RS draws from many of the same theories as CV; e.g., statistics, fusion, and  ...  This system uses no hand-coded plant or sensor models (these are required in Kalman filters). Their system uses an end-toend RNN approach that maps raw sensor data to a hidden sensor space.  ...
