Image registration is a very fundamental and important part in many multi-sensor image based applications. Phase correlation-based image registration method is widely concerned for its small computation amount, strong anti-interference property. However, it can only solve the image registration problem with translational motion. Hence, we proposed a modified phase correlation registration method in the paper. We analyzed the principle of registration, gave the flow chart, and applied the method to the SAR image registration problems with scaling, rotation and translation transformation. Simulation results show that the method can accurately estimate the translation parameters, zoom scale and rotation angle of registrating image relative to the reference image.
