A line segment detector for SAR images with controlled false alarm rate

Abstract : In this paper we propose to adapt LSD [1] (a state-of-the-art line segment detector for optical images) to SAR images. The first modification is replacing the gradient computation with an exponentially weighted ratio-based method which has a constant false alarm rate for SAR images. Next, we observe that the strong noise removal necessary for processing SAR images strongly impairs the independent hypothesis of the a contrario model used by LSD. A first order Markov chain is used to take the spatial dependencies into consideration. Experiments show that the proposed method has good perfor- mances and the number of false detections is well controlled.
