Paper Abstract

Extracting well distributed control points (CPs) is a very challenging task for remote sensing image registration, particularly for large high-resolution images over heterogeneous landscape. Based on image analysis such as edge detection, corner detection, and information theory, a new CP detection approach is proposed to select high- quality, evenly distributed CPs. The Entropy-Block-Based variant of the Harris Corner Detector (EBB-HCD) is achieved by dividing the image into blocks and by allocating the number of CP's based upon the entropy of each block. While the block-based strategy improves the CP balance problem, a factor calculated from entropy avoids overdetection. We conducted a comparison study utilizing the well-known Harris Corner Detector (HCD) and an implementation of the Block-Based Harris Corner Detector (BB-HCD). Experimental results indicate that using EBB-HCD to find the CPs improves the overall alignment accuracy during registration compared with HCD or BB-HCD.
