Paper Abstract

A practical processing framework for EO-based detection of building damage in dense urban areas is proposed based on pre- and post-event shadow differencing. The basic data set used for the detection of damaged buildings includes LiDAR and multispectral images with high spatial resolution. The typical building damage types after a major earthquake, such as height-reduced, overturn collapse and inclination, have been considered in this study. Through a scenario case study based on simulations of both building damage and shadow, understandings of the relationship between shadow and building damage are improved for real-time response practices.
