Geometrical registration of two images is nowadays a current and an important step in remote sensing before any further processing and interpretation of the data. Geometrical registration of images with a different ground resolution is useful for a better comprehension of dynamical processes (i.e. deforestation, desertification), as well as for extrapolating models of interpretation obtained on small regions to large areas. We present in this paper a procedure for a fully automatic registration of remotely sensed data based on the multiresolution decomposition of the images with the use of the wavelet transform. We have successfully applied this technique to register images having the same ground resolution, (SPOT HRV and LANDSAT MSS), and different ground resolutions (SPOT HRV with LANDSAT MSS, LANDSAT TM with SPOT HRV).
