This paper develops a novel multitemporal spectral unmixing (MSU) approach for addressing the challenging multiple-change detection problem in bi-temporal hyperspectral (HS) images. Differently from state-of-the-art techniques that mainly perform at a pixel level, the proposed MSU approach investigates the spectral-temporal variations at a subpixel level. A multitemporal spectral mixture model is defined to analyze the spectral composition within a pixel. Distinct multitemporal endmembers (MT-EMs) are extracted and employed for distinguishing change and no-change MT-EMs in the unmixing model. The CD problem is solved by analyzing the abundances of the unique change and no-change multitemporal endmembers and their contribution to each pixel. Experimental results obtained on multitemporal Hyperion HS images confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Abstract

This paper develops a novel multitemporal spectral unmixing (MSU) approach for addressing the challenging multiple-change detection problem in bi-temporal hyperspectral (HS) images. Differently from state-of-the-art techniques that mainly perform at a pixel level, the proposed MSU approach investigates the spectral-temporal variations at a subpixel level. A multitemporal spectral mixture model is defined to analyze the spectral composition within a pixel. Distinct multitemporal endmembers (MT-EMs) are extracted and employed for distinguishing change and no-change MT-EMs in the unmixing model. The CD problem is solved by analyzing the abundances of the unique change and no-change multitemporal endmembers and their contribution to each pixel. Experimental results obtained on multitemporal Hyperion HS images confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed method.
