Hyperspectral Image Segmentation via Frequency-Based Similarity for Mixed Noise Estimation
AbstractAccurate approximation of the signal-independent (SI) and signal-dependent (SD) mixed noise from hyperspectral (HS) images is a critical task for many image processing applications where the detection of homogeneous regions plays a key role. Most of the conventional methods empirically divide images into rectangular blocks and then select the homogeneous ones, but it might result in erroneous homogeneity detection, especially for highly textured HS images. To address this challenge, a superpixel segmentation algorithm is proposed in this paper, which can decompose a noisy HS image into patches that adhere to the local structures and hence persist in homogeneous characteristic. A novel spectral similarity measure is defined in the frequency domain to make the superpixel segmentation algorithm more robust to the mixed noise. Combined with an improved scatter-plot-based homogeneous superpixel selection and a multiple linear regression-based noise parameter calculation, our method can accurately estimate SD and SI noise variances from HS images with different noise conditions and various image complexities. We evaluate the proposed method with both synthetic and real Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) HS images. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed noise estimation method outperforms the state-of-the-art methods. View Full-Text
