A novel technique to generate the difference image (DI) in change detection analysis for polarimetric SAR (PolSAR) data is proposed. Unlike the standard methods, viz., band difference or intensity/amplitude ratioing, the proposed technique utilizes the full vector nature of multitemporal PolSAR data. In this data, a pixel is characterized by a $4\times 4$ Kennaugh matrix. The geodesic distance (GD)...
