PolSAR image compression based on online sparse K-SVD dictionary learning

PolSAR image compression based on online sparse K-SVD dictionary learning we present a novel polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) image compression scheme. PolSAR data contains lots of similar redundancies in single-channel and massively correlation between polarimetric channels. So these features make it difficult to represent PolSAR data efficiently. In this paper, discrete cosine transform (DCT) is adopted to remove redundancies between polarimetric channels, simple but quite efficient in improving compressibility. Sparse K-singular value decomposition (K-SVD) dictionary learning algorithm is utilized to remove redundancies within each channel image. Double sparsity scheme will be able to achieve fast convergence and low representation error by using a small number of sparsity dictionary elements, which is beneficial for the task of PolSAR image compression. Experimental results demonstrate that both numerical evaluation indicators and visual effect of reconstructed images outperform other methods, such as SPIHT, JPEG2000, and offline method. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Multimedia Tools and Applications Springer Journals
