Paper Abstract

This paper describes an optimized approach to identifying changes within a sequence of ESR images of Heathrow airport. We show that joint annealed segmentation avoids the false detections encountered along the edges of structural features when detecting differences between segmented scenes. This leads to an optimized change detection process, which can be applied in the detection of aircraft and vehicles around the airfield, even though the resolution of ERS image is only 25 m (range) by 6.25 m (azimuth). In addition, we show how joint segmentation of the coherence image between pairs of 35-day repeats yield an appreciable improvement in a false color change representation based on two amplitude images and their coherence image.
