Abstract


Computer vision techniques that operate on hyper- and multispectral imagery benefit from the additional amount of spectral information relative to those that exploit traditional RGB or monochromatic visual data. However, the increased volume of data to be processed brings about additional memory, storage and computational requirements. In order to address such limitations, a wide range of techniques for dimensionality reduction have been introduced by previous work. In this paper, we propose a framework for spectral band selection that is highly data- and computationally efficient. The method leverages a convolutional siamese network learned by optimizing a contrastive loss, and performs band selection based on the low-dimensional data embeddings produced by the network. We empirically demonstrate the efficacy of the method on an object detection task from aerial multispectral imagery. The results show that, in spite of the method's frugality, it produces very competitive band selection results against the evaluated competing techniques.
