Abstract [en]

The classic constant false alarm rate edge detector with a rectangle-shaped filter has been proven to be effective and widely used in polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) images. However, in practical use, the assumption of complex Wishart distribution is often not respected, particularly in heterogeneous urban areas. In addition, as a simple smoothing filter, the rectangle-shaped window is often shown to be easy to incur false edge pixels near true edges. Therefore, its performance is limited. To overcome this restriction, we propose a new edge detector for PolSAR images, which utilizes the spherically invariant random vector product model to estimate the normalized covariance matrix for each pixel, and then replace the rectangle-shaped filter with a Gauss-shaped filter. The performance of our proposed methodology is presented and analyzed on two real PolSAR data sets, and the results show that the new edge detector attains better performance than the classic one, particularly for urban areas.
