ABSTRACT
We propose an algorithm for automatic detection of buildings
with complex shapes and roof structures in very high spatial
resolution remotely sensed images. First, an initial overseg-
mentation is obtained. Then, candidate building regions are
found using shadow and sun azimuth angle information. Fi-
nally, the building regions are selected by clustering the can-
didate regions using minimum spanning trees. The experi-
ments on Ikonos scenes show that the algorithm is able to
detect buildings with complex appearances and shapes.
Index Terms-- Building detection, segmentation, spatial
relationships, minimum spanning trees
