Image registration is a crucial step in all image analysis tasks in which the final information is gained from the combination of various data sources, and it is difficult to automatically register due to the complexity of image. An approach based on genetic algorithm and Hausdorff distance to automatic image registration is presented. We use a multi-resolution edge tracker to find out the fine-quality edges and utilize the Hausdorff distance between the input image and the reference image as similarity measure. We use wavelet decomposition and genetic algorithm, which combine local search methods with global ones balancing exploration and exploitation, to speed up the search of the best transformation parameters. Experimental results show that the proposed approach is a promising method for registration of image.
