This paper proposes a feature-based image registering technique for remote sensing satellite images. The system is composed of multiple steps in which various image processing techniques are used. Speed-up Robust Features (SURF) and Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT) can be mounted alternatively to detect and define features on images. We also address the issues of registering multi-spectral and multi-temporal images. The effectiveness of the proposed technique has been studied by registering partially overlapping satellite mosaic images of the Marmara Sea. The images were captured by the recently-launched LandSat-8 satellite.
