Automatic extraction of buildings and modeling of their
spatial arrangements provide essential information for ur-
ban applications. This paper describes our work on mod-
eling urbanization using spatial building patterns. Build-
ing detection is done using Bayesian classification of multi-
spectral information. The individual buildings are used
as textural primitives, and co-occurrence-based spatial do-
main features and Fourier spectrum-based frequency do-
main features are used to model their repetitiveness and
periodicity at particular orientations. These features are
used to classify neighborhoods as organized (regular) and
unorganized (irregular). Experiments with high-resolution
Ikonos imagery show that the proposed technique can be
