Abstract:   A hierarchical stepwise optimization process is used for polarimetric SAR image segmentation. The process starts with small sets of pixels as segments and then sequentially merges the segment pair that minimises a stepwise criterion. The polarimetric information could be represented by a covariance matrix. The proposed criterion is based upon the testing of the equality of covariance matrices of adjacent regions. The segmentation of SAR images is greatly complicated by the presence of coherent speckle. We are using spatial constraints and contour shapes in order to improve the segmentation results.
