Paper Abstract

In this paper, a general model for multisource classification of remotely sensed data based on Markov random fields (MRF) is proposed. A specific model for fusion of optical images, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, and GIS (geographic information systems) ground cover data is presented in detail and tested. The MRF model exploits spatial class dependency context between neighboring pixels in an image, and temporal class dependency context between the different images. The performance of the specific model is investigated by fusing Landsat TM images, multitemporal ERS-1 SAR images, and GIS ground-cover maps for land- use classification. The MRF model performs significantly better than a simpler reference fusion model it is compared to.
