ABSTRACT
Landcover is subject to continuous changes on a wide variety of temporal and spatial scales. Those changes produce significant effects in human and natural activities. Maintaining an updated spatial database with the occurred changes allows a better monitoring of the Earth's resources and management of the environment. Change detection (CD) techniques using images from different sensors, such as satellite imagery, aerial photographs, etc., have proven to be suitable and secure data sources from which updated information can be extracted efficiently, so that changes can also be inventoried and monitored. In this paper, a multisource CD methodology for multiresolution datasets is applied. First, different change indices are processed, then different thresholding algorithms for change/no_change are applied to these indices in order to better estimate the statistical parameters of these categories, finally the indices are integrated into a change detection multisource fusion process, which allows generating a single CD result from several combination of indices. This methodology has been applied to datasets with different spectral and spatial resolution properties. Then, the obtained results are evaluated by means of a quality control analysis, as well as with complementary graphical representations. The suggested methodology has also been proved efficiently for identifying the change detection index with the higher contribution.

f15-sensors-12-03528: Multiplicative method (Π) ROC curves (a) Level 1; (b) Level 2; (c) Level 3.

Mentions: Regarding level 3, although a similar trend is also observed, this representation depicts the deficient results reached for this level (Figure 14(c)). Finally, for representing the results of the multiplicative method by means of ROC curves, a unique solution was accessible for each level, so these curves are built up based on these single results (Figure 15).
