Paper Abstract

A novel algorithm for matching synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image to Optical image based on lineal feature using Hausdorff distance combined with genetic algorithm is proposed in this paper. A new method is presented to extract lineal feature from low signal to noise ratio (SNR) SAR image. Based on the edge image from SAR and Optical image, modified Hausdorff distance is adopted as a similarity measure because it is insensitive to noise. Genetic algorithm is used as searching strategy to achieve high computation speed for its inertial parallel. Experimental results using real SAR and Optical images demonstrate that the algorithm is robust, fast and can achieve high matching accuracy.
