Paper Abstract

The knowledge of the geometrical relationship between images is a prerequisite for registration. Assuming a conformal affine transformation, 4 transformation parameters have to be determined. This is done on the basis of the geometrical arrangement of characteristic objects extracted from images in a preprocessing step, for example a land use classification yielding forest, pond, or urban regions. The algorithm introduced establishes correspondence between (centers of gravity of) objects by building and matching so-called ANGLE CHAINS, a linear structure for representing a geometric (2D) arrangement. An example with satellite imagery illustrates the usefulness of the algorithm.
