Postdoctoral Fellow Received Major National Honor at Higher Education Outstanding Scientific Research Output Awards 2013
Dr Tian Fang, Postdoctoral Fellow of CSE, was awarded the second class honor in the Ministry of Education Higher Education Outstanding Scientific Research Output Awards (Science and Technology) 2013. The awards recognize outstanding research projects being carried out at tertiary institutions throughout China.
The purpose of the Dr Fang's pioneer project "Theories and Methods of Earth Surface Feature Modeling and Visualization Based on Multi-Sensor Spatial Data" is to explore the computer pattern recognition theory to implement complex 3D city reconstruction and improve segmentation accuracy. Dr Fang and his collaborators from Beijing Normal University and Wuhan University have made outstanding contributions to the research and application of image segmentation and intelligent data 3D scene reconstruction. They have put forward a series of novel approaches for denoising the images and point clouds with missing data, noise and complex backgrounds. They have also promoted the development of object recognition and segmentation technologies, improved the theories and methods of multi-sensor data-driven 3D reconstruction, thus forming unique theory systems for automatic reconstruction of 3D city models.
