Paper Abstract

We address the issue of cloud removal from images. Typically a cloud on an image is not uniform and we develop methods that do denoising on a local level. In this paper we present preliminary studies of such methods and also a method for image fusion. The procedure is based on the use of a denoising pixel-level measure. The measure is defined through a 1-D Pseudo Wigner Distribution (PWD) applied to non-overlapping N-pixel window slices of the original image. The method is illustrated with different set of artificial and natural cloudy or foggy images, which are partially occluded by clouds in different regions. Another advantage of the present approach is its reduced computational cost in comparison with other methods based on a full 2-D implementation of the PWD.
