GCD methodological development is described in (Wheaton et al., 2010a), the Wheaton (2008) thesis, and the Wheaton et al. (2010b) RRA paper. The Matlab version of the code (DoD 3) is provided as supplemental information with the ESPL paper so that readers can test or extend the code as they see fit for their purposes. The Milan et al. (2011) paper provides a nice overview of basic change detection methods and Williams (2012) provides a nice overview of DEM of Differencing.
