This paper presents an algorithm for spots detection in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images that can be used to support environmental remote monitoring. Monitoring areas with high frequency of oil spillage by accidental or illegal oil discharges can prevent marine damage spreading. But the presence of speckle noise in SAR images limits the visual… (More)
This work is concerned with extracting straight lines in SAR image areas for application of urban analysis. The methodology combines the Hough transform and the line detectors algorithms proposed in Tupin et al.  to extract the main axes in road networks. A real SAR image is used to test the proposed algorithm.
