Application Study on Double-Constrained Change Detection for Land Use/Land Cover Based on GF-6 WFV Imageries
As a new satellite sensor of the GaoFen (GF) series, GF-6 Wide Field of View (WFV) with the resolution of 16 m has the characteristics of wide coverage, high-frequency imaging and has four new bands of two red-edge, yellow, and purple compared with GF-1 WFV. In order to test the validity of the supplementary bands of GF-6WFV data for change detection of land use/land cover (LULC), this study applied the Double-constrained Change Detection Method (DCDM) that uses the double constraints (change
... ctor intensity and correlation coefficient) for change detection on object-level. According to two GF-6WFV imageries acquired in the Xiong'an New Area in June of 2018 and 2019, feature analysis was performed to determine whether the new bands are helpful to detect the change of LULC first. Then, by coupling these selected features, the intensity of change vector and correlation coefficient were used as the double constraints to perform the change detection. The study demonstrates that the relevant features of the two red-edge bands can achieve the overall accuracy of 89% for change detection of LULC and improved by 2% comparing with using the corresponding temporal GF-1WFV data, while the purple and yellow bands cannot provide enough effective information for this detection. This study can provide theoretical support for the in-depth applications of GF-6 WFV data products in the change detection fields and has explored its applicability and potential in resource and environment monitoring, it is helpful to the further applications.
