An adaptive decision based kriging interpolation technique for the removal of high density salt and pepper noise in images is proposed. The algorithm isolates the non noisy pixels and process only noisy pixel. The corrupted pixel is replaced by a value that is interpolated using the weights calculated using semi-variance between the corrupted pixels and the non noisy pixels in a confined neighborhood. The proposed technique requires at least three non noisy pixels in a current processing window, failing which the window increases adaptively. The proposed technique was found to exhibit good of quantitative evaluation and visual quality. The proposed algorithm also preserves image information with accurate noise detection when compared to many standard and existing algorithms.
