Abstract
In this work we present a method for detecting leafless trees in digital elevation models derived from high resolution aerial imagery. No spectral classification as usually conducted is needed for our approach. This makes the method applicable for stereo imagery using only panchromatic or RGB imagery or even acquisitions in early spring showing trees without foliage. The method is based on statistics of densely calculated aspect and slope angles in the DSM. Using a segmentation based on the watershed transformation gives areas large enough for reasonable statistics but also limited to individual tree or building objects. Removing the detected trees from the DSM allows the calculation of a building mask which can in turn be used for the urban modeling of buildings. The detected trees will be modeled in parallel and the models joined together afterwards. The development of the method and the evaluation is based on images acquired with the 3K camera system developed by DLR in early spring 2015 over the german city of Braunschweig. After description of the algorithm the selection of the main classification parameter is shown together with a manual quality assessment.
