The very high spectral resolution in hyperspectral images (HSIs) offers an opportunity to detect subtle land-cover changes.

To effectively tackle the resolution matching issue, a super-resolution (SR) block with an efficient subpixel convolution layer is introduced to upscale the LR feature maps into HR maps. The subpixel convolution layer can fully explore the subpixel context information by learning an array of upscaling filters.

More importantly, the SPC module as a plug-and-play unit has the potential to be embedded into other baseline networks to enhance the feature learning capability. Experimental results on four HSI datasets demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed SPCNet.

Abstract

The very high spectral resolution in hyperspectral images (HSIs) offers an opportunity to detect subtle land-cover changes. However, the availability of HSIs acquired from different platforms requires the development of change detection (CD) methods capable of processing HSIs with different spatial resolutions. In this article, we propose a general end-to-end subpixel convolution-based residual network (SPCNet) to accomplish the CD task between high spatial resolution (HR) and low spatial resolution (LR) HSIs. To effectively tackle the resolution matching issue, a super-resolution (SR) block with an efficient subpixel convolution layer is introduced to upscale the LR feature maps into HR maps. The subpixel convolution layer can fully explore the subpixel context information by learning an array of upscaling filters. Moreover, the designed SPC module is embedded into the LR branch to generate more discriminative representations. More importantly, the SPC module as a plug-and-play unit has the potential to be embedded into other baseline networks to enhance the feature learning capability. Experimental results on four HSI datasets demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed SPCNet.
