The coastal videometry system (KostaSystem) developed by AZTI Technology Center (www.azti.es) is composed by a group of fixed cameras that cover different coastal environments (beach and ports). The information obtained from these cameras is processed in various ways in order to monitor several parameters of interest to achieve a sustainable management of the coastline. The Marine Dynamics and Operational Oceanography group of AZTI has collaborated for years with TECNALIA’s Computer Vision Research Group. Specifically, in the development of advanced image analysis algorithms that KostaSystem cameras collect, such as the “Run-up” and “Rebase” algorithms described in the blog post: “AUTOMATIC INFORMATION ANALYSIS OF COASTAL EMERGENCY INFORMATION BY VIDEOMETRY”. TECNALIA has also developed an Automatic Beach Segmentation and Occupancy Estimation algorithm for AZTI. The Hondartza software aims, given an image of a beach, the classification of each of the pixels between person or non-person with the goal of [...]
