Paper Abstract

The paper addresses the issue on landmark matching of images from Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites. In general, satellite imagery is matched against the base image, which is predefined. When the satellite imagery rotation occurs, the accuracy of many landmark matching algorithms deteriorates. To overcome this problem, generalised Hough transform (GHT) is employed for landmark matching. At first an improved GHT algorithm is proposed to enhance rotational invariance. Secondly a global coastline is processed to generate the test image as the satellite image and the base image. Then the test image is matched against the base image using the proposed algorithm. The matching results show that the proposed algorithm is rotation invariant and works well in landmark matching.
