The paper presents an information theory approach for change detection, using Earth observation images. Correlation coefficient and Kullback-Leibler divergence are used as similarity measures allowing to find out where did change occur. Further, for an image characterization method, rate distortion theory is implemented to delimitate image complex regions,(More)
The ill-defined nature of the segmentation problem makes the selection of the optimal image partition difficult. One can characterize image segmentation as an attempt to find the best possible representation of a data set using a certain number of “objects.” This can be regarded as data information compression, resulting in the distortion of the original(More)
In natural hazards management applications Earth Observation (EO) image processing methods are based on segmentation and classification. The result primary consists of thematic maps which are readily interpretable. We propose a complete EO image processing chain, which generates an end product with increased information content organized in thematic layers.(More)
Nowadays the Earth Observation sensors provide images containing detailed information relevant for applications related to hazard or security matters. Unfortunately, the process of EO image analysis, interpretation and transformation in products useful to the rescue or decision teams is still a laborious task, effectuated many times by visual inspection and(More)
