Abstract: Remote sensing images have huge amount of information in it due to use of high resolution cameras and sensors. Region of interest (ROI) is defined as the regions which draw the attention of viewer at first sight and they are the focal point of the image. ROI selection in remote sensing images allows the viewer to search for specific objects in the region. Traditional approaches for ROI selection are computationally complex and inaccurate. In this work, a hybrid approach which combines the best of frequency domain analysis and Super pixel based spatially weighted intensity contrasting is proposed for selecting the ROI in remote sensing images. Compared to previous methods the proposed hybrid ROI selection is able to extract the ROI accurately.
