A minimum-cost thresholding technique for unsupervised change detection
Abstract:We propose an automatic thresholding technique for difference images in unsupervised change detection. Such a technique takes into account the different costs that may be associated with commission and omission errors in the selection of the decision threshold. This allows the generation of maps in which the overall change-detection cost is minimized, i.e. the more critical kind of error is reduced according to end-user requirements.
