Multi-Sensor SAR Image Registration Based on Object Shape
AbstractOwing to significant differences in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images caused by diverse imaging mechanisms and imaging conditions, inconsistent features and relationship correspondences constitute key problems for traditional image registration algorithms. This study presents a novel SAR image registration method based on the shape information of distinct ground objects, which is obtained via object extraction and morphological operations. We utilize a shape context descriptor to compare the contours of objects and detect invariant control points. The experimental results show that the proposed method can achieve a reliable and stable registration performance for SAR images of different sensors. View Full-Text
