This letter proposes an approach for building detection from single very high resolution optical satellite images by fusing the knowledge of shadow and urban area information. One of the main contributions of this work is in the integration of urban area information: unlike previous studies, we use such information to substantially revise and improve the initial shadow mask. Additionally, we present an effective way to discriminate dark regions from cast shadows, a task that has continuously… CONTINUE READING
