Abstract
Many emerging SAR applications require imagery which is multi-channel either in time, frequency, or polarization. If SAR segmentation algorithms are going to be of genuine utility they must be applicable to such datasets. Two approaches to multi-channel segmentation are considered: segmenting each channel separately and then recombining the results; and segmenting the multi-channel image as a single entity. In both cases segmentation is based on edge detection and segment growing. The utility of multi-channel segmentation for change detection, classification and analyzing the information content of multi-channel data, is discussed. A multi-temporal ERS-1 image, and a multi-polarized, multi-frequency AIRSAR image of the same agricultural scene, are used for case studies.
