Abstract

A multi-scale texture segmentation algorithm for SAR images based on the discrete wavelet transform is presented. Responses from different sub-bands are used to form a feature vector for each pixel position that is the input to the classification scheme. To further improve the classification results, the tree-structured wavelet packet transform is used to automatically identify a suitable sub-set of elements from the feature vector. Results show that this approach is effective for both the redundant and non-redundant wavelet transforms.
