An Advanced Non-Gaussian Feature Space Method for POL-SAR Image Segmentation
This work extends upon our simple feature-based multichannel SAR segmentation method to incorporate highly desirable statistical properties into a computationally simple approach. The desirable properties include Markov random field contextual smoothing and goodness-of-fit testing to automatically obtain the significant number of classes. To achieve this we need to find an explicit class model to fit these non-Gaussian, non-symmetric or skewed feature space clusters. We take the skewed scale mixture of Gaussian scheme to model our classes and approximate it by a number of constrained Gaussians, thereby retaining much of the speed and simplicity of the original feature space method. The algorithm will be demonstrated on a real data and compared to an automatic Gaussian model.
