26 March 2001 Multiresolution image registration of remotely sensed imagery using mutual information
Author Affiliations +
Wavelet-based image registration has previously been proposed by the authors. In previous work, maxima obtained from orthogonal Daubechies filters as well as from Simoncelli steerable filters were utilized and compared to register images with a multi-resolution correlation technique. Previous comparative studies between both types of filters have shown that the accuracy obtained with orthogonal filters seemed to degrade very quickly for large rotations and large amounts of noise, while results obtained with steerable filters appeared much more stable under these conditions. In other studies based on the use of mutual information for image registration, several authors have shown that maximizing mutual information enables one to reach sub-pixel registration accuracy. In this work, we are utilizing Simoncelli steerable filters to provide the basic data from which mutual information is maximized and we are applying this method to remotely sensed imagery.
