With the rapid development of remote sensing, digital image processing has become an important tool for the quantitative and statistical analysis of remotely sensed images. These images most often contain complex natural scenes. The robust interpretation of such images requires the use of different sources of information about the scenes under consideration. This paper presents an integrated approach to robust analysis of SPOT images with the aid of map information as well as a priori knowledge… Expand
