Remote Sensing, Vol. 11, Pages 142: Change Detection Based on Multi-Grained Cascade Forest and Multi-Scale Fusion for SAR Images (Remote Sensing)
 




In this paper, a novel change detection approach based on multi-grained cascade forest(gcForest) and multi-scale fusion for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images is proposed. It detectsthe changed and unchanged areas of the images by using the well-trained gcForest. Most existingchange detection methods need to select the appropriate size of the image block. However, thesingle size image block only provides a part of the local information, and gcForest cannot achieve agood effect on the image representation learning ability. Therefore, the proposed approach choosesdifferent sizes of image blocks as the input of gcForest, which can learn more image characteristicsand reduce the influence of the local information of the image on the classification result as well.In addition, in order to improve the detection accuracy of those pixels whose gray value changesabruptly, the proposed approach combines gradient information of the difference image with theprobability map obtained from the well-trained gcForest. Therefore, the image edge information canbe enhanced and the accuracy of edge detection can be improved by extracting the image gradientinformation. Experiments on four data sets indicate that the proposed approach outperforms otherstate-of-the-art algorithms.
