In this letter, we present a novel foreground/background separation (FBS) framework for interpreting polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) images. The FBS framework takes the spatial relations between pixels into consideration and incorporates the advantages of pairwise dissimilarity-based grouping schemes. The FBS method can separate specific targets and objects from the background, which is essential in an interpretation system. Multiple FBS operations can be integrated to interpret PolSAR images, flexibly fusing various inherent features of PolSAR data. Several PolSAR data sets are used to verify the proposed approach.
