A recently published paper presents an approach for classifying urban blocks according to their built-up structure based on high-resolution spaceborne InSAR images. Most attributes considered in the classification describe the geometric structure and spatial disposition of the polygon and line features extracted from each block. The feature extraction is carried out on two intensity images [...]

While crowd-sourcing OSM updates during disasters proved very successful, there is not yet a convenient way of automatically accessing up-to-date OSM data for specific regions of interest. Addressing this need, HeiGIT [...]
