Paper Abstract

In the field of remote-sensed image segmentation, it is very important to obtain semantic results. However, in high resolution remote sensed images, different complex patterns always have components with the same spectrum, which makes it rather difficult to extract such patterns only through traditional clustering methods. In this paper, a novel multi-stage region-level clustering method is proposed to solve this problem. Firstly, the initial oversegmentation is obtained by using the Mean Shift algorithm, based on which a region adjacent graph (RAG) is built; Then, FCM is employed to get the spectral-based segmentation result; After that, the context clues for each region is calculated according to the label and size of neighboring regions, followed by the second FCM clustering on each set of regions with the same label to distinct regions with the same spectrum but belongs to different objects; Rearranging all of these clustering results to form the finial processing unit, this algorithm goes a step further to calculate more accurate context clues, and use the third FCM to obtain the final segmentation result. Experiments on the high resolution remote-sensed images have shown the superiority to the competitions.
