A new image enhancement method applied to polarimetric SAR image is proposed in this paper. Instead of widely-used intensity image, this method processes real part and imaginary part of complex SAR image. Independent Component Analysis (ICA) algorithm is used to extract enhanced real and imaginary images, for multiplicative speckle noise in intensity SAR… CONTINUE READING
