Detecting coastlines from aerial images
MetadataShow full item record
The unique structures of different coastline segments provide distinctive image features for several applications such as oceanography, georeferencing, cartography and autonomous navigation. In this paper, a procedure involving automatic multiresolution coastline extraction is described. Using this method, sea and land textures are segmented utilizing cooccurrence and histogram features of wavelet image representation. The coastlines are identified as the boundaries of the sea regions.
