Binary change detection in bi-temporal co-registered hyperspectral images is a challenging task due to a large number of spectral bands present in the data. Researchers, therefore, try to handle it by reducing dimensions. The proposed work aims to build a novel feature extraction system using a feature fusion deep convolutional autoencoder for detecting changes between a pair of such bi-temporal co-registered hyperspectral images. The feature fusion considers features across successive levels

The change detection technique described is completely unsupervised and is much more elegant than other supervised or semi-supervised methods which require some amount of label information. Different methods have been applied to the extracted features to find the changes in the two images and it is found that the proposed method clearly outperformed the state of the art methods in unsupervised change detection for all the datasets.
