Refined building change detection in satellite stereo imagery based on belief functions and reliabilities

Abstract

Digital Surface Models (DSMs) generated from satellite stereo imagery provide valuable but not comprehensive information for building change detection. Therefore, belief functions have been introduced to solve this problem by fusing DSM information with changes extracted from images. However, miss-detection can not be avoided if the DSMs are containing large region of wrong height values. A refined workflow is thereby proposed by adopting the initial disparity map to generate a reliability map. This reliability map is then built in the fusion model. The reliability map has been tested in both Dempster-Shafer Theory (DST), and Dezert-Smarandache Theory (DSmT) frameworks. The results have been validated by comparing to the manually extracted change reference mask.
