Ateş, Hasan Fehmi
MetadataShow full item record
Assessment of battle damages is significant both for tactical planning and for after-war relief efforts. In this study damaged buildings are detected using self-similarity descriptor in pre- and post-war satellite images. Detection accuracy is improved by the use of a contextual model that describes the building neighborhoods. Building footprints are utilized for accurate assessment of building-level changes and for the formation of neighborhood context. The Gaza Strip after 2014 Israel-Palestine conflict is analyzed with the suggested method and 84% true positive rate and 19% false positive rate are obtained on the average for detection of damaged buildings with respect to the ground truth data of UNOSAT.
