This paper compares different filters used to register images taken from different satellites to subpixel precision. The registration algorithm is one proposed by Thevenaz et al which uses a modified Levenberg-Marquardt process to find the rigid transform that best maps one image into another. Our findings are that while applied to single-sensor synthetic data, centered spline filters and the low pass band of Simoncelli steerable pyramid are equally sensitive to initial guess while the bandpass sub-band of the Simoncelli filters exhibits larger senstivity. For multisensor and noisy data, however, the bandpass filters produce the most consistent results.
