# Kernel principal component and maximum autocorrelation factor analyses for change detection [7477-28]

#### Abstract

Kernel versions of the principal components (PCA) and maximum autocorrelation factor (MAF) transformations are used to postprocess change images obtained with the iteratively re-weighted multivariate alteration detection (MAD) algorithm. It is found that substantial improvements in the ratio of signal (change) to background noise (no change) can be obtained especially with kernel MAF.
