Hello! My name is Tamara and I am a senior Computer Science Major at Earlham College and this is my capstone project. I am interested in applying machine learning and other computational techniques for better understanding of social issues. Here is the abstract of my capstone project proposal.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have only recently been applied
in the detection of clandestine graves. With the growing technical
abilities of UAVs, more opportunities are available in methods
for recording data. This opened many doors for detecting hidden
graves because now many different sensing devices can be used
in remote areas that were inaccessible to humans. This study will
compare the use of hyperspectral and RGB images taken by drones
to detect hidden graves. It is aiming to compare how accurately
the graves can be detected post-image processing using the same
technique. The primary motivation is to help future researchers
more easily decide which data collection technique they should use.
The processing technique used on both data sets is a model with
an edge detection algorithm.
