Automatic extraction of buildings from aerial images

This paper presents a model-based method for the automatic 3D-analysis of man-made structures in aerial images. Objects to be recognized like buildings are modeled by productions and depicted by a production net. Different types of models and productions are distinguished. A parametric model of a simple gabled roof is used to give an example for a production net and to illustrate the processing steps of the image analysis. Also generic models are discussed. In order to automatically test and evaluate implemented production nets of parametric models a test bed is proposed.
