For many Earth and Space Science applications, automatic geo-registration at sub-pixel accuracy has become a necessity. In this work, we are focusing on building an operational system, which will provide a sub-pixel accuracy registration of Landsat-5 and Landsat-7 data. The input to our registration method consists of scenes that have been geometrically and radiometrically corrected. Such pre-processed scenes are then geo-registered relative to a database of Landsat chips. The method assumes a transformation composed of a rotation and a translation, and utilizes rotation and translation-invariant wavelets to extract image features that are matched using statistically robust feature matching and a partial Hausdorff distance metric. The registration process is described and results on four Landsat input scenes of the Washington, D.C. area are presented.
