Abstract: The state of built-up features after their destruction as well as the process of their rehabilitation are assessed through the analysis of conflict and post-conflict very high spatial resolution Ikonos images. The automatic recognition procedure is based on a priori fuzzy rules formalized using two basic information derived from satellite data: structural information extracted by the derivative of the morphological profile (DMP) on the panchromatic data, and presence of vegetation derived from the multi-spectral data. The procedure is validated using a per-pixel and per-region image understanding approach.
