A new preprocessing technique is presented in this paper to automatically highlight changes in multitemporal strongly heterogeneous remotely sensed images. The proposed technique is devoted to the case where the two acquisitions, before and after a given event, are significantly different, due, for instance, to different sensors, acquisition modalities, or climatic conditions. In a previous study, it was proven that the local statistics of the images acquired at the two dates could be used to… 
Unsupervised Change Detection in Heterogeneous Remote Sensing Imagery
TLDR
The main novelty driving this study is that the comparison of affinity matrices can be used to define crossdomain similarities based on pixel relations rather than the direct comparison of radiometry values, which helps to tackle the problem of unsupervised heterogeneous change detection.

TLDR
A convolution model is proposed whose purpose is to map the first image to the domain of the other image thus ensuring that the two satellite images share the same statistics and on which a classical monomodal change detection methods can then be applied.
A New Multivariate Statistical Model for Change Detection in Images Acquired by Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Sensors
TLDR
This paper proposes a new approach for similarity measurement between images acquired by heterogeneous sensors that exploits the considered sensor physical properties and specially the associated measurement noise models and local joint distributions.
A Bayesian Nonparametric Model Coupled with a Markov Random Field for Change Detection in Heterogeneous Remote Sensing Images
TLDR
A Bayesian nonparametric framework allowing us to deal with an unknown number of objects in analysis windows without specifying an upper bound for this number is introduced and a Markov random field is introduced to account for the spatial correlation between neighboring pixels.
FOR HOMOGENEOUS AND HETEROGENEOUS IMAGES
A statistical model for detecting changes in remote sensing images has recently been proposed in (Prendes et al., 2014, 2015). This model is sufficiently general to be used for homogeneous images
A new change detector in heterogeneous remote sensing imagery
TLDR
This paper presents a novel, reliable and simple change detection operator which is first based on a imaging modality-invariant operator that detects the common specific high-frequency pattern of each structural region existing in the two heterogeneous satellite images.
REMOTE SENSING IMAGE REGRESSION FOR HETEROGENEOUS CHANGE DETECTION
TLDR
A framework, based on image regression, to perform change detection in heterogeneous multitemporal satellite images, indicates that random forests achieve good performance, are fast and robust to hyperparameters, whereas the homogeneous pixel transformation method can achieve better accuracy at the cost of a higher complexity.
Change Detection with Heterogeneous Remote Sensing Data: From Semi-Parametric Regression to Deep Learning
TLDR
The problem and the opportunities of change detection from multitemporal data acquired through heterogeneous modalities are addressed, and the methodological approaches proposed in the literature’ which range from earlier semi-parametric regression to current deep learning architectures are reviewed.
Heterogeneous Change Detection on Remote Sensing Data with Self-Supervised Deep Canonically Correlated Autoencoders
TLDR
A major novelty of the work consists in including a prior information model, used to make the method unsupervised, within a well-established algorithm such as the canonical correlation analysis, and in combining these with a deep learning framework to give rise to an image translation method able to compare heterogeneous images regardless of their highly different domains.
A Reliable Mixed-Norm-Based Multiresolution Change Detector in Heterogeneous Remote Sensing Images
TLDR
A novel and reliable unsupervised change detection method to analyze heterogeneous remotely sensed image pairs based on an imaging modality-invariant operator that detects at different scale levels the differences in terms of high-frequency pattern of each structural region existing in the two heterogeneous satellite images.
