This paper presents a kernel-based approach for the change detection of remote sensing images. It detects change by comparing the probability density (PD), expressed as kernel functions, of the feature vector extracted from bi- temporal images. PD is compared by defined kernel functions without immediate PD estimation. This algorithm is model-free and it can process multidimensional data, and is fit for the images with rich texture in particular. Experimental results show that overall accuracy of the algorithm is 98.9 %, a little bit better than that of the change vector analysis and classification comparison method, which is 96.7 % and 95.9 % respectively.
