There is much current interest in using multisensor airborne remote sensing to monitor the structure and biodiversity of forests. This paper addresses the application of non-parametric image registration techniques to precisely align images obtained from multimodal imaging, which is critical for the successful identification of individual trees using object recognition approaches. Non-parametric image registration, in particular the technique of optimizing one objective function containing data…

This paper analyzes the problem of the automatic multisensor image registration and introduces similarity measures which can replace the correlation coefficient in a deformation map estimation scheme and shows an example where the deformed map between a radar image and an optical one is fully automatically estimated.
Registration Techniques for Multisensor Remotely Sensed Imagery
A comparative study of some recent image registration methods for multisensor image data to enable the user to select algorithms that work best for his/her particular application domain.
Wavelet-based image registration technique for high-resolution remote sensing images
An automatic image registration for applications in remote sensing
The proposed algorithm for this technique has been successfully applied to register multitemporal SPOT and synthetic aperture radar images from urban and agricultural areas and demonstrates the robustness, efficiency and accuracy of the algorithm.
Automatic Image Registration Through Image Segmentation and SIFT
A new AIR method is proposed, based on the combination of image segmentation and SIFT, complemented by a robust procedure of outlier removal, which allows for an accurate obtention of tie points for a pair of remote sensing images, being a powerful scheme for AIR.
Automatic Image Registration Technique of Remote Sensing Images
Quantitative comparisons of the proposed image registration technique with the related techniques show a significant improvement in the presence of large scale, rotation changes, and the intensity changes.

A solely histogram-based method to achieve automatic registration within TerraSAR-X and Ikonos images acquired specifically over urban areas is analyzed and indicates that the proposed method is successful in estimating large global shifts followed by a fine refinement of registration parameters for high-resolution images acquired over dense urban areas.
Multiresolution registration of remote sensing imagery by optimization of mutual information using a stochastic gradient
This work introduces a registration algorithm that combines a simple yet powerful search strategy based on a stochastic gradient with two similarity measures, correlation and mutual information, together with a wavelet-based multiresolution pyramid, and shows that mutual information may be better suited for sub-pixel registration than correlation.
A contour-based approach to multisensor image registration
Two contour-based methods which use region boundaries and other strong edges as matching primitives are presented, which have outperformed manual registration in terms of root mean square error at the control points.
