Analog/digital image processing of historical aerial imagery in the Italian National Photographic Aerial Archive (AFN-ICCD)

3 - 4 June 2019 (IGN headquarters | 73, Avenue de Paris, 94165 Saint-Mandé, France) . More and more countries have digitized or are currently digitizing their archives of aerial images. They are a unique and relatively unexplored means to chronicle land-cover information over the past 100 years with very high spatial resolution. Such data provide a relatively dense temporal sampling of the territories. 3D information can even be retrieved since many surveys were performed under photogrammetric conditions. Therefore, both long-term environmental monitoring studies and historical object detection can be based on the analysis of these very rich time series of images.
