Abstract

In this paper we present a novel combination of object features to both match buildings from pre-disaster images to shapes in a post-disaster image and assess damage on those buildings. These features include scale profile ratios extracted from a tree of shapes representation of the original image as well as texture features. A supervised classifier is used to classify building damage into three representative classes tied to the European Macroseismic Scale (EMS-98). The method is compared to visual inspection results as well as other automated methods. Results clearly show the benefits of our method for fast crisis mapping applications with few human inputs required.
