  • In this paper, we present a new image up-sampling method which registers low resolution images to the high resolution grid when Bayesian super-resolution image processing is performed. The proposed up-sampling method interpolates high-resolution pixels using high-frequency data lying in all the low resolution images, instead of up-sampling each low resolution image separately. The interpolation is based on B-spline non-uniform re-sampling, adjusted for the super-resolution image processing. The experimental results demonstrate the effects when different up-sampling methods generally used such as zero-padding or bilinear interpolation are applied to the super-resolution image reconstruction. Then, we show that the proposed hybird up-sampling method generates high-resolution images more accurately than conventional methods with quantitative and qualitative assess measures.

  • This paper proposes a new reconstruction method of high-resolution facial image from a low-resolution facial image based on a recursive error back-projection of top-down machine learning. A face is represented by a linear combination of prototypes of shape and texture. With the shape and texture information about the pixels in a given low-resolution facial image, we can estimate optimal coefficients for a linear combination of prototypes of shape and those of texture by solving least square minimization. Then high-resolution facial image can be obtained by using the optimal coefficients for linear combination of the high-resolution prototypes, In addition to, a recursive error back-projection is applied to improve the accuracy of synthesized high-resolution facial image. The encouraging results of the proposed method show that our method can be used to improve the performance of the face recognition by applying our method to reconstruct high-resolution facial images from low-resolution one captured at a distance.

  • This study presents an approach to reconstruct high-resolution imagery for multispectral imagery of low-resolution using panchromatic imagery of high-resolution. The proposed scheme reconstructs a high-resolution image which agrees with original spectral values. It uses a linear model of high-and low- resolution images and consists of two stages. The first one is to perform a global estimation of the least square error on the basis of a linear model of low-resolution image associated with high-resolution feature, and next local correction then makes the reconstructed image locally fit to the original spectral values. In this study, the new method was applied to KOMPSAT-1 EOC image of 6m and LANDSAT ETM+ of 30m, and an 1m RGB image was also generated from 4m IKONOS multispectral data. The results show its capability to reconstruct high-resolution imagery from multispectral data of low-resolution.

  • Super resolution image reconstruction method refers to image processing algorithms that produce a high resolution(HR) image from observed several low resolution(LR) images of the same scene. This method is proved to be useful in many practical cases where multiple frames of the same scene can be obtained, such as satellite imaging, video surveillance, video enhancement and restoration, digital mosaicking, and medical imaging. In this paper we applied super resolution reconstruction method in spatial domain to video sequences. Test images are adjacently sampled images from continuous video sequences and overlapped for high rate. We constructed the observation model between the HR images and LR images applied by the Maximum A Posteriori(MAP) reconstruction method that is one of the major methods in the super resolution grid construction. Based on this method, we reconstructed high resolution images from low resolution images and compared the results with those from other known interpolation methods.

  • Today, use of high resolution satellite image with at least 1m resolution is expanding into many more areas including forest, river way, city, seashore and so forth for disaster prevention. Interest in this medium is increasing among the general public due to the roll-out to the private sector as Google earth, Virtual Earth and so forth. However, pre-processing process that revises the geometrical distortion that result at the time of photographing is required in order to use high resolution satellite image. The purpose of this research is to search the most accurate GCP(Ground Control Point) information acquisition method that is used for the revision of high resolution satellite image's geometrical distortion through automated processing. Through this, it is possible to contribute to increasing the level of accuracy at the time of high resolution satellite image revision and to secure promptness.

  • Images with high resolution are desired and often required in many visual applications. When resolution can not be improved by replacing sensors, either because of cost or hardware physical limits, super resolution image reconstruction method is what can be resorted to. Super resolution image reconstruction method refers to image processing algorithms that produce high quality and high resolution images from a set of low quality and low resolution images. The method is proved to be useful in many practical cases where multiple frames of the same scene can be obtained, including satellite imaging, video surveillance, video enhancement and restoration, digital mosaicking, and medical imaging. The method can be either the frequency domain approach or the spatial domain approach. Much of the earlier works concentrated on the frequency domain formulation, but as more general degradation models were considered, later researches had been almost exclusively on spatial domain formulations. The method in spatial domains has three stages: i) motion estimate or image registration, ii) interpolation onto high resolution grid and iii) deblurring process. The super resolution grid construction in the second stage was discussed in this paper. We applied the Maximum A­Posteriori(MAP) reconstruction method that is one of the major methods in the super resolution grid construction. Based on this method, we reconstructed high resolution images from a set of low resolution images and compared the results with those from other known interpolation methods.

  • This paper presents a method to extract a good high-resolution image from a low-resolution video in an automatic manner. Since a high-resolution image reconstruction method utilizing several low-resolution input images works better than a conventional interpolation method utilizing single low-resolution input image only if the input images are well registered onto a common high-resolution grid, low-resolution input images should be carefully chosen so that the registration errors can be carefully considered. In this paper, the statistics obtained from the motion-compensated low-resolution images are utilized to evaluate the feasibility of the input image candidates. Maximum motion-compensation error is estimated from the high-resolution image observation model. U the motion-compensation error of the input image candidate is greater than the estimated maximum motion-compensation error, the input image candidate is discarded. The number of good input image candidates and the statistics of the motion-compensation errors are used to choose final input images. The final input images chosen from the input image selection block are given to the following high-resolution image reconstruction block. It is expected that the proposed method is utilized to extract a good high-resolution image efficiently from a low-resolution video without any user intervention.

  • Image super-resolution (SR) is a technique that enhances the resolution of a low resolution image. In this study, we use three SR models (RCAN, ProSRGAN and Bicubic) for enhancing solar SDO/HMI magnetograms using deep learning. Each model generates a high resolution HMI image from a low resolution HMI image (4 by 4 binning). The pixel resolution of HMI is about 0.504 arcsec. Deep learning networks try to find the hidden equation between low resolution image and high resolution image from given input and the corresponding output image. In this study, we trained three models with HMI images in 2014 and test them with HMI images in 2015. We find that the RCAN model achieves higher quality results than the other two methods in view of both visual aspects and metrics: 31.40 peak signal-to-noise ratio(PSNR), Correlation Coefficient (0.96), Root mean square error (RMSE) is 0.004. This result is also much better than the conventional bi-cubic interpolation. We apply this model to a full-resolution SDO/HMI image and compare the generated image with the corresponding Hinode NFI magnetogram. As a result, we get a very high correlation (0.92) between the generated SR magnetogram and the Hinode one.

  • Iris recognition is a biometric technique which uses unique iris patterns between the pupil and sclera. The advantage of iris recognition lies in high recognition accuracy; however, for good performance, it requires the diameter of the iris to be greater than 200 pixels in an input image. So, a conventional iris system uses a camera with a costly and bulky zoom lens. To overcome this problem, we propose a new method to restore a low resolution iris image into a high resolution image using a single image. This study has three novelties compared to previous works: (i) To obtain a high resolution iris image, we only use a single iris image. This can solve the problems of conventional restoration methods with multiple images, which need considerable processing time for image capturing and registration. (ii) By using bilinear interpolation and a constrained least squares (CLS) filter based on the degradation model, we obtain a high resolution iris image with high recognition performance at fast speed. (iii) We select the optimized parameters of the CLS filter and degradation model according to the zoom factor of the image in terms of recognition accuracy. Experimental results showed that the accuracy of iris recognition was enhanced using the proposed method.

  • The Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) is the instrument of Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) to study the magnetic field and oscillation at the solar surface. The HMI image is not enough to analyze very small magnetic features on solar surface since it has a spatial resolution of one arcsec. Super resolution is a technique that enhances the resolution of a low resolution image. In this study, we use a method for enhancing the solar image resolution using a Deep-learning model which generates a high resolution HMI image from a low resolution HMI image (4 by 4 binning). Deep learning networks try to find the hidden equation between low resolution image and high resolution image from given input and the corresponding output image. In this study, we trained a model based on a very deep residual channel attention networks (RCAN) with HMI images in 2014 and test it with HMI images in 2015. We find that the model achieves high quality results in view of both visual and measures: 31.40 peak signal-to-noise ratio(PSNR), Correlation Coefficient (0.96), Root mean square error (RMSE) is 0.004. This result is much better than the conventional bi-cubic interpolation. We will apply this model to full-resolution SDO/HMI and GST magnetograms.
