On 22th November 2021, Joshi Gunjan (D1), Department of Electrical Engineering, received "JSPRS Award" .
＜Name of award and short explanation about the award＞
Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS) 2021 awards Japan Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (JSPRS) prize to young authors less than 35 who have presented excellent full papers.
＜About awarded research＞
We presented our work on the fusion of satellite data which was used to generate landcover maps of earthquake damage-affected regions in Indonesia.
We also showcased the explainability of the neural network by introducing the "Inverse Mapping" dynamics, through which we were able to explain the significance of the different features we used in our study.
＜Your impression & future plan＞
It is a great honour to be recognised and this award has motivated me further to work in this research topic. My next step is to focus on the fusion of satellite data for remote monitoring of the cryosphere.
