Need for Registration

  • GPS have accuracies up to 5m, depending on the quality of the receiver, number of satellites etc.

  • Measurements in fields with different obstacles

  • Hand held instruments

  • the data may have errors due to

  • inaccuracies during the measurements

Image Preprocessing

Original image

Flagged image

Flagging all the non-chartered pixels with a non realistic pixel value

  • No rectangular images

  • Unchartered patches in the interior due to obstacles

Image Registration

The geophysical images are from different modalities

Mutual Information was used as a similarity measure

We used a simplified version of the cost function (Kovalev V. A. and Petrou M., 1998), where exhaustive search is used to find the parameters of the global translation that would maximize the mutual information between the pairs of images as well as their overlapping area.

Mutual Information

0.1204

Mutual Information 0.2234

Mutual Information 0.5431

Registration Results

In all three cases the results agreed exactly with the known shift between the pairs of images from their geographical coordinates.

Affine Transformation

Affine transformation is a linear 2-D geometric transformation which maps variables, through a linear combination of rotation, scaling and shearing followed by a translation, into new variables.

Rotation

Original Image

Scaling

Shearing

Proposed Methodology

START

Apply the affine transformation while we check the effect on the Mutual Information

Randomly selected parameters for the affine transformation

Registered Images

(with the exhaustive search method)

Randomly selected area

Transformation is saved and the transformed image is updated

Does the termination criterion has met ?

STOP

YES

NO

Is there improvement on the Mutual Information?

For the pixels at the places of the window with the maximum distortion,

Parameter is calculated as,

“continuity” parameter

Selecting ,

the pixels at the periphery

do not move much.

The Delaunay triangulation method (Delaunay B., 1934) was used.


Registration of geophysical images

The randomly selected central pixel and the (2M+3)x(2M+3) window are selected with the condition that the whole window does not contain uncharted pixels.

The algorithm was run without any change of the parameters for the 2 testing pair of images

Different values of mutual information for the two testing pair of images

Conclusions

Registration method with rigid body translations succeeded to register the geophysical images in agreement with the geographical coordinates.

Local inaccuracies (offsets) during the measurements degrade the overall mutual information between the images.

We introduced a new efficient and effective semi-stochastic optimization algorithm which applies randomly distortions with randomly selected parameters, and accepts the changes only when they help increase the mutual information between the images.

We proposed a method that applies local distortion while preserves the continuity of the grid.

We selected the parameters of the algorithm by using a training pair of images and then tested it, without changing these parameters on two other sets of images.

In all cases the algorithm increased the mutual information between the images beyond the benchmark value of rigid body registration.
