Paper Abstract

This paper describes a procedure developed for the automated segmentation of multiple side-looking airborne radar (SLAR) images, i.e. the detection of the boundaries of agricultural fields. The segmentation procedure is based on a split-and-merge algorithm which may process up to three input images simultaneously. The input images must be in registration. A registration method is proposed which uses coarse structural descriptions of the input images as represented by attributed quartic picture trees (QPT).
