—Most of existing change detection methods could be classified into three groups, the traditional pixel-based change detection (PBCD), the object-based change detection (OBCD), and the hybrid change detection (HCD). Nevertheless, both PBCD and OBCD have disadvantages, and classical HCD methods belong to intuitive decision-level fusion schemes of PBCD and(More)
—The precise estimation of the baseline is a crucial procedure in repeat-pass interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) applications. Using the ephemeris of the satellite, a polynomial regression algorithm can fit the satellite orbit at the third or higher order with a main shortcoming that the mutual constraints among the three dimensions defining(More)
A novel shape descriptor, named as ratio histograms (R-histogram), is proposed to represent the relative attitude relationship between two independent shapes. For a pair of two shapes, the shapes are treated as the longitudinal segments parallel to the line connecting centroids of the two shapes, and the R-histogram is composed of the length ratios of(More)
Change detection is a process of identifying changes in the state of objects between the reference and test images. This letter presents a target prescreening method that employs the change detection technique for automatic target recognition in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. First, four translated versions of an original SAR image are generated,(More)
