    • GPU Implementation of Satellite Image Filtering using OpenCL Institute for Geoinformatics Advanced processing of geospatial data- GPU, Grid and Cloud computing Ermias Beyene Tesfamariam 15 July 2010
    • Objective• Efficient edge detection method for remote sensing imageries.• implementation of image filtering on programmable GPU using the openCL language• Comparison of different algorithms (Sobel vs. Laplacian) for their efficiency and quality
    • Application• The HOST executes the code written as usual, using C++.• The DEVICES execute OpenCL code.• Use specific OpenCL compiler for the CPU & for the GPU (ATI Stream).• The OpenCL API has functions to identify devices, compile programs, send and receive information and run OpenCL program on the chosen device.
    • ApplicationOpenCL Code: 1 - Create the OpenCL code using OpenCL language;Host Code: 2 - Create program using C++; 3 - Import the data to be processed; 4 - Use the OpenCL API to transfer data to the devices; 5 - Use the OpenCL API to call executions; 6 - Retrieve processed data.
    • Main OpenCL API Commands• Memory allocation via API – clCreateBuffer• Accessing device memory via API – clEnqueueWriteBuffer – clEnqueueReadBuffer
    • Method• Landsat imageries – Bands with high contrast, e.g. Band 4• Image Convolution – 3X3 Filtering Mask convolves over the image• Sobel Algorithm• Laplacian Algorithm
    • Sobel Filter• 2-D anisotropic measure of the 1st spatial derivative of an image.
    • Sobel filter• consists of two kernels (Masks) which detect horizontal and vertical changes in an image• The 3x3 Sobel kernels are: – Horizontal – Vertical
    • Sobel filter
    • Laplacian filter 2-D isotropic measure of the 2nd spatial derivative of an image.
    • Sobel Filter Output Image
    • Sobel Filter Output Image
    • GPU vs CPU performanceSobel FilterLaplacian Filter
    • Open Issue• Applying Image smoothing and contrast enhancement before/during filtering
