—In this letter, an unsupervised method for estimating the equivalent number of looks (ENL) in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images is proposed. Assuming that the multiplicative noise in the SAR images is a unit mean random variable of Gamma distribution parameterized by the ENL, a lookup table between the ENL and the variance of the logarithm of the(More)
SUMMARY In this paper, a new method is proposed for unsupervised speckle level estimation in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. It is assumed that fully developed speckle intensity has a Gamma distribution. Based on this assumption, estimation of the equivalent number of looks (ENL) is transformed into noise variance estimation in the logarithmic SAR(More)
Visual interpretation of SAR images plays a critical role in remote sensing applications. For obtaining the image suitable for human observation, a new method of visualization for SAR images is proposed in this paper. The proposed algorithm takes a negative exponential transformation on the original SAR image. The parameter of the transformation can be(More)
