A Hierarchical and Contextual Model for Aerial Image Parsing

Figure 2.  Parsing an aerial image into groups of related objects.

Aerial image understanding is an important field of research for tackling the problems of automated navigation, large scale 3D scene construction, and object tracking for use in event detection. In this chapter of my dissertation I created a 3-layer hierarchy with embedded contextual constraints along with a 3-stage inference algorithm to solve the problems above and capture the natural hierarchical and contextual nature of aerial images.
