Paper Abstract

The edge information of infrared image for ground scene is an important means to express the contour of object and match MWIR and visible image. In this paper, a novel method is proposed to analyze the edge continuity of the entire scene quantitatively. In order to investigate the mutual relationship between edge continuity and matching performance, a great deal of MWIR and visible aerial image sequences are selected from rural and factory district scenes in the different time of a day quantitatively. According to the experimental results, conclusions can be made that the edge continuity is proportional to the correlation peak value, and inversely proportional to the registration error for the same scene.
