AbstractThis study proposes a new three-component method for timely detection of land cover changes using polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) images. The three components are object-oriented image analysis (OOIA), change vector analysis (CVA), and post-classification comparison (PCC). First, two PolSAR images acquired over the same area at different dates are segmented hierarchically to delineate land parcels (image objects). Then, parcel-based CVA is performed with the coherency matrices of the PolSAR data to detect changed parcels. Finally, PCC based on a parcel-based classification algorithm integrating polarimetric decomposition, decision tree algorithms, and support vector machines is used to determine the type of change for the changed parcels. Compared with conventional PCC based on the widely used Wishart supervised classification, the three-component method achieves much higher accuracy for land cover change detection with PolSAR images. The contribution of each component is evaluated by excluding it from the method. The integration of OOIA in the method greatly reduces the false alarms caused by speckle noise in PolSAR images as well as improves the accuracy of PolSAR image classification. CVA contributes to the method by significantly reducing the effect of the classification errors on the change detection. The use of PCC in the method not only identifies different types of land cover change but also reduces the false alarms introduced by the change in the environment. The three-component method is validated in land development detection, which is important to many developing countries that are confronting a growing problem of unauthorized construction land expansion. The results show that the three-component method is effective in detecting land developments with PolSAR images. © 2015 International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Inc. (ISPRS).
