Destriping of Landsat MSS images by filtering techniques
: The removal of striping noise encountered in the Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS) images can be generally done by using frequency filtering techniques. Frequency do~ain filteri~g has, how~ver, se,:era~ prob~ems~ such as storage limitation of data required for fast Fourier transforms, nngmg artl~acts appe~nng at hlgh-mt,enslty.dlscontinuities, and edge effects between adjacent filtered data sets. One way for clrcu~,,:entmg the above difficulties IS, to design a spatial filter to convolve with the images. Because it is known that the,stnpmg a.lways appears at frequencies of 1/6, 1/3, and 1/2 cycles per line, it is possible to design a simple one-dimensIOnal spat~a~ fll,ter to take advantage of this a priori knowledge to cope with the above problems. The desired filter is the type of ~mlte Impuls~ response which can be designed by a linear programming and Remez's exchange algorithm coupled ~lth an adaptIve tec,hmque. In addition, a four-step spatial filtering technique with an appropriate adaptive approach IS also presented which may be particularly useful for geometrically rectified MSS images.
