In this paper, we examine the use of machine learning to improve a rooftop detection process, one step in a vision system that recognizes buildings in overhead imagery. We review the problem of analyzing aerial images and describe an existing system that detects buildings in such images. We briefly review four algorithms that we selected to improve rooftop detection. The data sets were highly skewed and the cost of mistakes differed between the classes, so we used ROC analysis to evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
