RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project Geoinformatics Unit

Unit Leader: Naoto Yokoya (D.Eng.)

Research Summary

Naoto  Yokoya(D.Eng.)

Geoinformatics Unit aims at developing intelligent systems that monitor and assess the state and changes of urban areas and natural environments from large-scale time-series geospatial data. We study fundamental technologies of geospatial data analysis that can deal with data incompleteness, limited training data, and multimodality. Our applied research includes disaster response, urban planning, and forest monitoring.
