Paper Abstract

Airport detection is one of the most important research topics in the remote sensing application field. In the field, majority of airport detection methods are designed based on different single resolution optical remote sensing images. However, because of the RS data's limitation and algorithms' shortages, these methods are not likely to have a perfect performance; inaccuracy and inefficiency are the two main drawbacks. In recent years, while much research of airport recognition has been done on single resolution images, less work has been tried to study on multi-resolution and multi-spectrum images together. Nevertheless, after many experiences, the latter method is proved available and attemptable in our research. Based on the different characteristics of multi-resolution and multi-spectrum images, we try to design a synthetical model which includes algorithms of structure feature analysis and spectral analysis. In the model, different advantages of images and methods are combined to reduce influence of each other's limitations. Finally, an airport-detection system is implemented based on the synthesis method. This paper focuses on the designment and implementation of the synthesis model, enrich the research of airport recognition and solve many problems. Section 1 provides an overview of the synthesis model. Section 2 discusses the core algorithms of the method in detail. Section 3 demonstrates airport detention system and Section 4 concludes the paper.
