Evaluation Embedding Features for Ground-Based Cloud Classification
Ground-based cloud classification plays a vital important role in meteorological research. However, the existing methods perform well confined to one weather station. In this paper, we present a detailed introduction of two representative embedding features for ground-based cloud classification in various weather stations. The features are learned from the metric learning and the convolutional neural network (CNN), respectively. The two kinds of features are evaluated on two weather stations.
