Paper Abstract

A wavelet-based image registration approach has previously been proposed by the authors. In this work, wavelet coefficient maxima obtained from an orthogonal wavelet decomposition using Daubechies filters were utilized to register images in a multi-resolution fashion. Tested on several remote sensing datasets, this method gave very encouraging results. Despite the lack of translation- invariance of these filters, we showed that when using cross-correlation as a feature matching technique, features of size larger than twice the size of the filters are correctly registered by using the low-frequency subbands of the Daubechies wavelet decomposition. Nevertheless, high- frequency subbands are still sensitive to translation effects. In this work, we are considering a rotation- and translation-invariant representation developed by E. Simoncelli and integrate it in our image registration scheme. The two types of filters, Daubechies and Simoncelli filters, are then being compared from a registration point of view, utilizing synthetic data as well as data from the Landsat/Thematic Mapper and from the NOAA Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer.
