— In this paper I propose the design of a novel building extraction system, entitled BuRS, which is capable of identifying man-made structures that are visible in monocular greyscale aerial photography of rural settlements (sparsely built-up areas). The system design is texture measure driven; integrates both edges and regions; and does not utilise an(More)
Parallel programming can provide higher computational performance over a sequential implementation by making use of the many cores available in parallel systems. However, the parallel-capable devices introduce complexity into the programming model. Current parallel programming API's such as OpenCL and CUDA provide interfaces to the parallel devices, but are(More)
