Abstract

A method to examine the shifts in individual surface features in multi-temporal SAR images has been proposed. First, line-like and boundary-like features were extracted from SAR imagery using the pixel swapping method. The extracted feature images were then tied to observe an overall shift in individual features. We applied this method to two JERS-1 SAR images of the same path-row observed on different dates. We observed that the shift in flat areas was simple, but that in mountainous regions, there was a clear difference in the direction of the shift in ridges and valleys caused by the slightly different orbital characteristics of the satellite between the two images. In addition, care in choosing appropriate tie points was found to be important. The method used in this investigation is expected to be useful in planning an appropriate strategy for the coregistration of images, such as in SAR images used for change detection in environmental monitoring, and InSAR.
