  journal={IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing},
This paper focuses on the description and demonstration of a simple, but effective object-based image analysis (OBIA) approach to extract urban land cover information from high spatial resolution (HSR) multi-spectral and light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data. Particular emphasis is put on the evaluation of the proposed method with regard to its generalization capabilities across varying situations. For this purpose, the experimental setup of this work includes three urban study areas… CONTINUE READING
