Paper Abstract

The factors governing the extraction of useful information from polarimetric images depend upon the image acquisition and analytical methodologies being used, and upon systematic and environmental variations present during the acquisition process. The acquisition process generally occurs with foreknowledge of the analysis to be used. Broadly, interactive image analysis and automated image analysis are two different procedures: in each case, there are technical challenges. Imaging polarimetry is more complex than other imaging methodologies, and produces an increased dimensionality. However, there are several potential broad areas of interactive (manual) and automated remote sensing in which imaging polarimetry can provide useful additional information. A review is presented of the factors controlling feature discrimination, of metrics that are used, and of some proposed directions for future research.
