AZTI has developed, and is operating for more than 10 years, videometry systems for monitoring sandy shores and bathing areas, equipped with cameras that capture images from a fixed point of view at known time intervals. The products derived from the treatment of the images obtained and the referencing of this information using photogrammetric techniques provide direct information of great value, for the continuous understanding and monitoring of different processes and uses of the coastline. In this sense, AZTI has developed its own technology called KostaSystem® (www.kostasystem.com). The Marine Technologies 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 [...]
