Vectorization of Large Amounts of Raster Satellite Images in a Distributed Architecture Using HIPI

Abstract—Vectorization processes focus on grouping pixels of a raster image into raw line segments, and forming lines, polylines or polygons. To vectorize massive raster images regarding resource and performance problems, we use a distributed HIPI image processing interface based on MapReduce approach. Apache Hadoop is placed at the core of the framework. To realize such … Read more
