The paper addresses the problem of feature selection during classification of image regions within the context of interpreting images showing highly structured objects such as buildings. We present a feature selection scheme that is connected with the classification framework Adaboost, cf. (Schapire and Singer, 1999). We constricted our weak learners on(More)
This paper addresses the problem of feature selection within classification processes. We present a comparison of a feature subset selection with respect to two boosting methods, Adaboost and ADTboost. In our evaluation, we have focused on three different criteria: the classification error and the efficiency of the process depending on the number of most(More)
In our contribution, we improve image segmentation by integrating depth information from multi-view analysis. We assume the object surface in each region can be represented by a low order polynomial, and estimate the best fitting parameters of a plane using those points of the point cloud, which are mapped to the specific region. We can merge adjacent image(More)
Texture is one of the most important features for object detection and recognition. In many applications, it is derived from the responses of texture filters. In this paper, we evaluate the potential of seven texture filter banks for the pixel-based classification of terrestrial facade images. Particularly, we analyze features from Gabor, Haar, Root Filter(More)
Multi-class image classification has made significant advances in recent years through the combination of local and global features. This paper proposes a novel approach called hierarchical conditional random field (HCRF) that explicitly models region adjacency graph and region hierarchy graph structure of an image. This allows to set up a joint and(More)
We present a method for detecting repeated structures, which is applied on facade images for describing the regularity of their windows. Our approach finds and explicitly represents repetitive structures and thus gives initial representation of facades. No explicit notion of a window is used, thus the method also appears to be able to identify other man(More)
