Detection of anomalous activity in hyperspectral imaging: Metrics for evaluating algorithms Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, we consider detecting man-made objects in natural images. We segment the image into tiles; we consider a variety of statistical metrics and correlate them to the presence of man-made targets. To quantify the metric, we apply a method of implanting targets and evaluating the resulting ROC (Receiver Operating Characteristic) curves. We rank previously reported algorithms and develop new ones in this paper.
