With the ever-increasing number and diversity of Earth observation satellites, it steadily becomes more important to be able to analyze compound data sets consisting of different types of images acquired by different sensors. In this paper, we examine different ways of obtaining joint distributions of such images, and we propose a method that enables incorporation of correlations between images while keeping a good fit to the marginal distributions. The approach basically consists of two steps…

Supervised Classification of Multisensor and Multiresolution Remote Sensing Images With a Hierarchical Copula-Based Approach
TLDR
This paper develops a novel classification approach for multiresolution, multisensor [optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR)], and/or multiband images using a two-step explicit statistical model and integrates a prior update in this model in order to improve the robustness of the developed classifier against noise and speckle.

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.
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.
Tuning the Bivariate Meta-Gaussian Distribution Conditionally in Quantifying Precipitation Prediction Uncertainty
One of the ways to quantify uncertainty of deterministic forecasts is to construct a joint distribution between the forecast variable and the observed variable; then, the uncertainty of the forecast
Classification of Multisensor Images with Different Spatial Resolution
TLDR
It is shown that data fusion can be achieved using the proposed classifiers and improvement of classification quality can be obtained with respect to the cases where only one of the data sets is used.
Classification of Multisensor and Multiresolution Remote Sensing Images Through Hierarchical Markov Random Fields
This letter proposes two methods for the supervised classification of multisensor optical and synthetic aperture radar images with possibly different spatial resolutions. Both the methods are
A Clustering Approach to Heterogeneous Change Detection
TLDR
This paper proposes a clustering-based technique to detect changes, identified as clusters that split or merge in the different images, acquired by two different sensors, one optical radiometer and one synthetic aperture radar, at two different times.
Remote Sensing Data Fusion: Markov Models and Mathematical Morphology for Multisensor, Multiresolution, and Multiscale Image Classification
TLDR
In this framework, the present chapter continues the discussion of remote sensing data fusion, which was opened in the previous chapter, and the focus is on data fusion for image classification purposes.
The Contribution of SIASGE Radar Data Integrated With Optical Images to Support Thematic Mapping at Regional Scale
TLDR
The work has proved that the multisource dataset (radar and optical) is fairly suitable to produce thematic maps comparable to what is already in use at local administrative level, allowing one to achieve classification accuracy in the order of 90%.
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.

Conditional Copulas for Change Detection in Heterogeneous Remote Sensing Images
