Paper Abstract

For building detection from single very high spatial resolution (VHR) satellite images, we take advantage of visual saliency and Bayesian model to rapidly locate roof-top areas. We firstly generate saliency map of an image by a salient contrast filter using low-level feature. This filter distinguishes salient pixels if a pixel is visually different from its surroundings in color or texture. Secondly, a Bayesian model is proposed to generate all closed rectangular contours as mid-level content in the image. We suggest the area enclosed by contour corresponds to high saliency values. Finally, the roof-top areas are extracted by fusing different level information mentioned above. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of our algorithm.
