An approach to automatically detect impact craters on planetary surfaces is presented in this letter. It is built up from a boosting algorithm proposed by Viola and Jones (2004) whose simplicity combined with an original learning strategy leads to a fast and robust process with consistent results. The approach is validated with image data sets from Mars surface captured by the Mars Orbiter Camera onboard Mars Global Surveyor probe.
