In this letter, we propose to solve the change detection (CD) problem in multitemporal remote-sensing images using interactive segmentation methods. The user needs to input markers related to change and no-change classes in the difference image. Then, the pixels under these markers are used by the support vector machine classifier to generate a spectral-change map. To enhance further the result, we include the spatial contextual information in the decision process using two different solutions based on Markov random field and level-set methods. While the former is a region-driven method, the latter exploits both region and contour for performing the segmentation task. Experiments conducted on a set of four real remote-sensing images acquired by low as well as very high spatial resolution sensors and referring to different kinds of changes confirm the attractive capabilities of the proposed methods in generating accurate CD maps with simple and minimal interaction.
