This paper presents a novel approach for automatically detecting land cover changes from multitemporal high-resolution remote sensing images in the deep feature space. This is accomplished by using multitemporal deep feature collaborative learning and a semi-supervised Chan–Vese (SCV) model. The multitemporal deep feature collaborative learning model is developed to obtain the multitemporal deep feature representations in the same high-level feature space and to improve the separability between changed and unchanged patterns. The deep difference feature map at the object-level is then extracted through a feature similarity measure. Based on the deep difference feature map, the SCV model is proposed to detect changes in which labeled patterns automatically derived from uncertainty analysis are integrated into the energy functional to efficiently drive the contour towards accurate boundaries of changed objects. The experimental results obtained on the four data sets acquired by different high-resolution sensors corroborate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. View Full-Text
