Abstract

In this paper, we present a robust and accurate water region detection technique developed for supporting ship identification. Due to the varying appearance of water body and frequent intrusion of ships, a region-based recognition is proposed. We segment the image into perceptually meaningful segments and find all water segments using a sampling-based Support Vector Machine (SVM). The algorithm is tested on 6 different port surveillance sequences and achieves a pixel classification recall of 97.5% and precision of 96.4%. We also apply our water region detection to support the task of multiple ship detection. Combined with our cabin detector, it successfully removes 74.6% false detections generated in the cabin detection process. A slight decrease of 5% in the recall value is compensated by a significant improvement of 15% in precision.
