IGAC researches automatic Flood Area Extraction

UN-SPIDER's Regional Support Office in Colombia, the Agustin Codazzi Geographic Institute (IGAC), is currently researching automatic flooded area extraction. The experts are implementing the Adaboost algorithm, which is a change detection procedure. This algorithm consists in creating a strong classifier that is built from a small group of weak classifiers. IGAC's approach uses the medium, mean and variance filters, each of these calculated using three different windows sizes: 3x3, 5x5, and 7x7.
