Detection of Spatial Changes Using Spatial Data Mining
This paper uses the techniques of Spatial Data Mining (SDM) and Change Detection (CD) in the field of geospatial information processing. Assuming the feasibility of discovering knowledge from spatial database and the demands of knowledge for change detection, the paper presents that change detection needs knowledge and technology of SDM should be integrated into applications of change detection. Special knowledge for change detection of linear feature, area feature and terrain are studied. Relationship between accuracy of change detection and errors of image registration is discussed.
