Target location is a fundamental application in aerial image process. In this work, a fast normalized cross correlation algorithm is proposed for the application of target location in aerial image. Firstly, normalized cross correlation has been proved equivalent to Euclidean distance. In the search step, the target template and the corresponding window of base image are projected to a set of mutually orthonormal vectors for calculating the lower bound of the distance, where the windows with too large distance relative to the target template will be rejected in this step. Finally, the directly normalized cross correlation calculating is applied to the rest windows of base image to achieve the final correct location of target. The experimental results show that compared with traditional method, the proposed method significantly improved the computational complexity without sacrificing the spatial resolution or the accuracy of the match result.
