A Rule-Based System for House Reconstruction from Aerial Images

W. Willuhn and F. Ade
International Conference on Pattern Recognition
August 1996


We present a system for the reconstruction of houses from aerial images. Most of the methods proposed sofar use rather specific models. These models do not hold when dealing with european-style houses. Our system works with rules instead of models merely based on shape. This enables us to include additional domain specific knowledge, allowing a larger variability of the objects. However, this also necessitates a more complex structure of the knowledge base and a more sophisticated reasoning control. We explain the practical application of such a system for the reconstruction of a house from an aerial image.
