Abstract: This paper presents a methodology for the detection of dwelling structures in Darfur camps for estimating the total number of dwellings per camp using GeoEye-1 satellite images. The method is based on a translation of the visual characterisation of the searched structures into a morphological image processing chain. Two variants are described. The first is fully automatic, while the second links the area covered by dwellings to visual interpretation results of representative samples. Both variants are evaluated by comparing the obtained results with those of the visual interpretation.
