In this study, we propose a new line matching and reconstruction methodology for aerial image triplets that are acquired within a single strip. The newly developed stereo reconstruction approach gives us better line predictions in the third image which in turn helps to improve the performance of the matching. The redundancy information generated in each stereo match gives us ability to reduce the number of false matches while preserving high levels of matching completeness. The approach is tested over four test patches and produced highly promising line matching and reconstruction results.

Accurate Reconstruction of Near-Epipolar Line Segments from Stereo Aerial Images
Ok, Ali Ozgun; Wegner, Jan Dirk; Heipke, Christian; Rottensteiner, Franz; Soergel, Uwe; Toprak, Vedat (2012-01-01)
In this study, a new 3D reconstruction approach for line segments from stereo images is proposed which covers the case that the image lines are nearly-aligned (<= 10 degrees) with the epipolar line. The method manipulates the redundancy inherent in line pair-relations to generate artificial 3D points and utilizes those entities during the estimation process to improve the reconstruction of the line segments. The best points for the reconstruction are selected based on a newly proposed weight function. To te...
An algorithm for line matching in an image by mapping into an n-dimensional vector space
Sultanov, Raiymbek; Atakan, Ahmet; Ismailova, Rita (2019-01-01)
This paper proposes a minimal length difference algorithm for construction of a line in an image by solving the problem of optimal contour approximation. In this algorithm, a method for finding interest points is proposed, and the object matching (classification) is done by mapping interest points onto a vector space. In cases where the lines in the representation of the images are not smooth, the algorithm converges rapidly. The results of the experiments showed that for convergence of the contour simplifi...
A NEW STRAIGHT LINE RECONSTRUCTION METHODOLOGY FROM MULTI-SPECTRAL STEREO AERIAL IMAGE
Ok, Ahmet; Heipke, C.; Rottensteiner, F.; Soergel, U.; Toprak, V. (2010-09-03)
In this study, a new methodology for the reconstruction of line features from multispectral stereo aerial images is presented. We take full advantage of the existing multispectral information in aerial images all over the steps of pre-processing and edge detection. To accurately describe the straight line segments, a principal component analysis technique is adapted. The line to line correspondences between the stereo images are established using a new pair-wise stereo matching approach. The approach involv...
ACCURATE MATCHING AND RECONSTRUCTION OF LINE FEATURES FROM ULTRA HIGH RESOLUTION STEREO AERIAL IMAGES
Ok, Ahmet; Heipke, C.; Rottensteiner, F.; Soergel, U.; Toprak, V. (2011-06-17)
In this study, a new reconstruction approach is proposed for the line segments that are nearly-aligned(<= 10 degrees) with the epipolar line. The method manipulates the redundancy inherent in line pair-relations to generate artificial 3D point entities and utilize those entities during the estimation process to improve the height values of the reconstructed line segments. The best point entities for the reconstruction are selected based on a newly proposed weight function. To test the performance of the pro...
A robust method for scale independent detection of curvature-based criticalities and intersections in line drawings
Keles, Hacer Yalim; Tarı, Zehra Sibel (2015-01-01)
A novel two-phase iterative method is proposed to identify curvature based criticalities and intersections in line drawings. The method is based on evaluating a field obtained from the image via diffusion using adaptively changing ellipse-shaped analysis windows. The deviation of the average field strength values within the analysis windows from that of an external reference field is used as a metric to evaluate the criticality of a region. The external reference field is computed from an image of a straigh...
