Abstract. In this paper a novel object-oriented change detection approach in multitemporal remote-sensing images is proposed. In order to improve post classification comparison (PCC) performance, we propose to exploit spatiotemporal relationship between two images acquired at two different times. The probabilities of class transitions are used to describe the temporal dependence information, while the Markov Random Field (MRF) model is utilized to represent the spatial-contextual information. Training sets are required to get initial classification results b maximum likelihood method (ML). Then an estimation procedure: iterated conditional mode (ICM) is present to revise the classification results. Change detection (change/no change) and change type recognitions (from-to types of change) are achieved by compare classification maps acquired at two different times. Experimental results on two QuickBird images confirm that the proposee method can provide higher accuracy than the PCC method, which ignores spatiotemporal relationship between two images.
