Change detection for traffic monitoring in TerraSAR-X imagery

Palubinskas, Gintautas and Runge, Hartmut (2008) Change detection for traffic monitoring in TerraSAR-X imagery. In: International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, pp. 169-172. IEEE. IGARSS08, 2008-07-06 - 2008-07-11, Boston, USA.



In this paper the changes occurring in two images acquired at two different time moments are analyzed. In particular the interest is in the changes of filling grade of car-parks or even detecting stopped vehicles on the congested or jammed roads. As input to the change detection processor can serve two repeat-pass single channel images acquired by any airborne or space borne SAR satellite sensor. Each channel is focused, calibrated and processed to a single look slant range complex SAR image. The proposed change detection approach is based on the combination of various techniques: co-registration of two SAR images by interferometric SAR processor, removal of the flat Earth phase, channel balancing, calculating of a coherent or incoherent difference of two images and finally image post-processing and analysis. First experiments on TerraSAR-X imagery show promising results.
