In this article, a method based on a non-parametric estimation of the Kullback–Leibler divergence using a local feature space is proposed for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image change detection. First, local features based on a set of Gabor filters are extracted from both pre- and post-event images. The distribution of these local features from a local neighbourhood is considered as a statistical representation of the local image information. The Kullback–Leibler divergence as a probabilistic distance is used for measuring the similarity of the two distributions. Nevertheless, it is not trivial to estimate the distribution of a high-dimensional random vector, let alone the comparison of two distributions. Thus, a non-parametric method based on k-nearest neighbour search is proposed to compute the Kullback–Leibler divergence between the two distributions. Through experiments, this method is compared with other state-of-the-art methods and the effectiveness of the proposed method for SAR image change detection is demonstrated.
