In this paper, we propose to investigate the joint use of high-resolution optical and SAR data, for building extraction and 3D reconstruction in large urban areas. A sequence of methods providing, in a semi-automatic way, the building detection and reconstruction is presented. Potential building footprints are first extracted on an optical image by a two-phases process (coarse detection and boundaries refinement). The framework of fusion with SAR data is then developed. A first step of… CONTINUE READING
