A robust method for registering inter-band and inter-sensor remote sensing images has been designed and implemented. The proposed method introduces noise-resilient and contrast invariant control point detection and control point matching schemes based on robust complex wavelet feature representations. Furthermore, an iterative refinement scheme is introduced for achieving improved control point pair localization and mapping function estimation between the images being registered. The registration accuracy of the proposed method was demonstrated on the registration of multi-spectral optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. The proposed method achieves better registration accuracy when compared with the state-of-the-art MSSD and ARRSI registration algorithms.
