Background• In general, change detection involves the application of multi- temporal datasets to quantitatively analyze the temporal effects• Change detection can be deﬁned as the process of identifying differences in the state of an object or phenomenon by observing it at different times. This process is usually applied to Earth surface changes at two or more times.• understanding relationships and interactions to better manage and use resources• Change detection is useful in many applications such as land use changes, habitat fragmentation, rate of deforestation, coastal change, urban sprawl, and other cumulative changes
Change detection ► Two main categories of land cover changes: ▪ Conversion of land cover from one category to a different category. ▪ Modification of the condition of the land cover type within the same category (thinning of trees, selective cutting, pasture to cultivation, etc.)source; Norsk Regnesentral website
Applications of change detection techniques• land-use and land-cover (LULC) change• forest or vegetation change• forest mortality, defoliation and damage assessment• deforestation, regeneration and selective logging• wetland change• forest fire and fire-affected area detection• landscape change• urban change• environmental change, drought monitoring, flood monitoring, monitoring coastal marine environments, desertification, and detection of landslide areas• other applications such as crop monitoring, shifting cultivation monitoring, road segments, and change in glacier mass balance and facies.
Considerations before implementing change detection• Before implementing change detection analysis, the following conditions must be satisfied: i. precise registration of multi-temporal images; ii. precise radiometric and atmospheric calibration or normalization between multi-temporal images; iii. selection of the same spatial and spectral resolution images if possible
Good change detection research should provide the following information: i. area change and change rate ii. spatial distribution of changed types iii. Change trajectories of land-cover types iv. accuracy assessment of change detection results.
A review of change detection techniques• Because digital change detection is affected by spatial, spectral, radiometric and temporal constraints.• Many change detection techniques are possible to use, the selection of a suitable method or algorithm for a given research project is important, but not easy.

Category I Algebra Based Approach• The algebra category includes – image differencing, – image regression – Image ratioing – vegetation index differencing – change vector analysis (CVA)
Algebra based Approach……• These algorithms have a common characteristic, i.e. selecting thresholds to determine the changed areas. These methods (excluding CVA) are relatively simple, straightforward, easy to implement and interpret, but these cannot provide complete matrices of change information.• In this category, two aspects are critical for the change detection results: – selecting suitable image bands – selecting suitable thresholds
Image Differencing• Concept – Date 1 - Date 2 – No-change = 0 – Positive and negative values interpretable – Pick a threshold for change
Image Differencing• Image differencing: Pros – Simple (some say it’s the most commonly used method) – Easy to interpret – Robust• Cons: – Difference value is absolute, so same value may have different meaning – Requires atmospheric calibration
Image regression► Relationship between pixel values of two dates isestablished by using a regression function.► The dimension of the residuals is an indicator of wherechange occurred.► Advantage▪ Reduces impact of atmospheric, sensor and environmentaldifferences.► Drawback• Requires development of accurate regression functions.• Does not provide change matrix.
Image Ratioing• Concept – Date 1 / Date 2 – No-change = 1 – Values less than and greater than 1 are interpretable – Pick a threshold for change• Pros – Simple – May mitigate problems with viewing conditions, esp. sun angle• Cons – Scales change according to a single date, so same change on the ground may have different score depending on direction of change; I.e. 50/100 = .5, 100/50 = 2.0
Change vector analysis• In n-dimensional spectral space, determine length and direction of vector between Date 1 and Date2 Date 1 Band 4• No-change = 0 length Date 2• Change direction may be interpretable• Pick a threshold for change Band 3
Change vector analysis ► Determines in n-dimensional spectral space, the length and direction of the vector between Date 1 and Date 2. ► Produces an intensity image and a direction image of change. The direction image can be used to classify change. ► Typically used when all changes need to be investigated. ► Advantage ▪ Works on multispectral data. • Allows designation of the type of change occurring ► Drawbacksource; Norsk Regnesentral website ▪ Shares some of the drawbacks of algebra based techniques but less severe

Kauth Thomas Transformation• Described the temporal spectral patterns derived from Landsat MSS imagery for crops. As crops grow from seed to maturity, there is a net increase in NIR and decrease in Red Reflectance. This effect varies based on soil Color• Brightness Greenness Wetness• The Brightness, Greenness, Wetness transform was first developed for use with the Landsat MSS system and called the “Tasseled Cap” transformation.• The transform is based on a set of constants applied to the image in the form of a linear algebraic formula.• Brightness – primary axis calculated as the weighted sum of reflectances of all spectral bands.• Greenness – perpendicular to the axis of the Brightness component that passes through the point of maturity of all plants• Yellow Stuff – perpendicular to both Greenness and Brightness axis representing senesced vegetation.
Kauth Thomas Transformation Typically the first few components contain most of the information in the data so that four channels of LANDSAT MSS data or the six channels of the http://www.sjsu.edu/faculty/watkins/tassel.htm Thematic Mapper data may be reduced to just three principal components. The components higher than three are usually treated as being information less.Source; www.sjsu.edu/faculty/watkins/tassel.htm

Post-classification• Post-classification (delta classification) – Classify Date 1 and Date 2 separately, compare class values on pixel by pixel basis between dates• Post-classification: Pros – Avoids need for strict radiometric calibration – Favors classification scheme of user – Designates type of change occurring• Cons – Error is multiplicative from two parent maps – Changes within classes may be interesting
Composite Analysis• Composite Analysis – Stack Date 1 and Date 2 and run unsupervised classification on the whole stack• Composite Analysis: Pros – May extract maximum change variation – Includes reference for change, so change is anchored at starting value, unlike change vector analysis and image differencing• Cons – May be extremely difficult to interpret classes
Unsupervised techniques ► Objective ▪ Produce a change detection map in which changed areas are separated from unchanged ones. ► The changes sought are assumed to result in larger changes in radiance values than other factors. ► Comparison is performed directly on the spectral data. ► This results in a difference image which is analysed to separate insignificant from significant changes.source; Norsk Regnesentral website
Supervised techniques Objective Generate a change detection map where changed areas are identified and the land-cover transition type can be identified. The changes are detected and labelled using supervised classification approaches. Main techniques: • Post-classification comparison • Multidate direct classificationsource; Norsk Regnesentral website
Post classification comparison ► Standard supervised classifiers are used to classify the two images independently. ► Changes are detected by comparing the two classified images. ► Advantage ▪ Common and intuitive. ▪ Provides change matrix. ► Drawback ▪ Critically depends on the accuracy of the classification maps. Accuracy close to the product of the two results. ▪ Does not exploit the dependence between the information from the two points in time.source; Norsk Regnesentral website
Multidate direct classification ► Two dates are combined into one multitemporal image and classified. ► Performs joint classification of the two images by using a stacked feature vector. ► Change detection is performed by considering each transition as a class, and training the classifier to recognize all classes and all transitions. ► Advantage ▪ Exploits the multitemporal information. ▪ Error rate not cumulative. ▪ Provides change matrix. ► Drawback ▪ Ground truth required also for transitions.source; Norsk Regnesentral website

Factors to consider when choosing a method► Objective of the change detection?▪ Monitor/identify specific changes▪ More efficient mapping at T2▪ Improved quality of mapping at T2► What type of change information to extract?▪ Spectral changes▪ Land cover transitions▪ Shape changes▪ Changes in long temporal series► What type of changes to be considered?▪ Land use and land cover change▪ Forest and vegetation change▪ Wetland change▪ Urban change▪ Environmental change
Factors to consider…► Expected amount of changes► Available data at date 1 and date 2 • Remote sensing data • Temporal, spatial and spectral characteristics. • Differences in characteristics btw. date 1 and date 2. • Classified maps • Ground truth► Environmental considerations • Atmospheric conditions • Soil moisture conditions • Phenological states► Accuracy requirements
Comparing the Different Techniques Two types of change detection either detect binary change/non-change, or the detailed “from-to” change between different classes. Different change detection techniques are often tested and compared based on an accuracy assessment or qualitative assessment. no single method is suitable for all cases. A combination of two change detection techniques can improve the change detection results (image differencing/PCA, NDVI/PCA, PCA/CVA). The most common change detection methods: image differencing, PCA, CVA, and post-classification comparison.
Global change analyses and image resolution For change detection at high or moderate spatial resolution: use Landsat TM, SPOT, or radar. For change detection at the continental or global scale, use coarse resolution data such as MODIS and AVHRR. AVHRR has daily availability at low cost; it is the best source of data for large area change detection. NDVI and land surface temperatures derived from MODIS or AVHRR thermal bands are especially useful in large area change detection.
Threshold Selection Many change detection algorithms require threshold selection to determine whether a pixel has changed. Thresholds can be adjusted manually until the resulting image is satisfactory, or they can be selected statistically using a suitable standard deviation from a class mean. Both are highly subjective methods. Other methods exist for improving the change detection results, such as using fuzzy set and fuzzy membership functions to replace the thresholds. However, threshold selection is simple and intuitive, so it is still the most extensively applied method for detecting binary change/no-change information.
Accuracy Assessment Accuracy assessments are important for understanding the change detection results and using these results in decision-making. However, they are difficult to do because reliable temporal field-based datasets are often problematic to collect. The error matrix is the most common method for accuracy assessment. To properly generate one, the following factors must be considered: 1. ground truth data collection, 2. classification scheme, 3. sampling scheme, 4. spatial autocorrelation, and 5. sample size and sample unit.
Summary and Recommendations The binary change/no-change threshold techniques all have difficulties in distinguishing true changed areas from the detected change areas. Single- band image differencing and PCA are the recommended methods. Classification-based change detection methods can avoid such problems, but requires more effort to implement. Post-classification comparison is a suitable method when sufficient training data is available. When multi-source data is available, GIS techniques can be helpful. Advanced techniques such as LSMA, ANN, or a combination of change detection methods can produce higher quality change detection results.
