Paper Abstract

Edge correlation between multi-sensor images is an efficient technique for scene matching. However, in aerial images, the question of which edges of a scene should be used in the correlation requires consideration. A method is presented which suggests a criterion for selecting the best shape for connected edges for edge correlation. The criterion is based on reducing any secondary correlation peaks. A basis for selecting the best edges directly from a knowledge of the edge shapes is also presented.
