Automation of Digital Terrain Model Generation and Man-Made Object Extraction from Aerial Images (AMOBE) is a joint project between the Institute of Geodesy and Photogrammetry (IGP) and the Institute of Communications Technology (Image Science Group) (IKT) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. In the project we develop methods and algorithms to detect and reconstruct man-made objects, such as buildings and roads, and to generate Digital Surface Models (DSMs) from high resolution aerial images. Primary attention in AMOBE focuses on high quality reconstruction of buildings as being one of the more predominantly and frequently occurring 3-D man-made objects in high-resolution aerial imagery. In this paper we present our research strategy, current results, and make an outlook onto future work.
