Input Data

 

Marseille Area

Marseille is located in France. This town is typical of southern towns, with narrow streets, tile roofs…

The proposed test area is a very dense urban area, with only apartment buildings (no suburban area, no industrial area).

The proposed test area is a 1km x 0.5km area This test is hilly, with a height difference of about 90m, which makes this area more challenging.

The number of buildings [in black] is about 1850 (this number can appear to be high but that comes from the fact it is given by the French cadastre database: in this database, a unique building can belong to several homeowners, what generates several subdivisions…). The number of new buildings [in green] is 26, the number of old buildings [in red] is 91, the number of new outbuildings [in light green] is 20 and the number of old outbuildings [in pink] is 17.

 

Lyngby Area

Lyngby is just in north of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The proposed test site is a 1km x 1km area, with a big variety of buildings: detached single family houses, industrial buildings, very dense urban centre…

The area is relatively flat with a height difference of about 15 meters.

The provided DSM has been produced with a laser (GSD = 1m) Infrared and RGB Orthophotos are provided as well, with a GSD of 50 cm The number of buildings [in black] is about 510. The number of new buildings [in green] is 54, the number of old buildings [in red] is 18, the number of new outbuildings [in light green] is 13 and the number of old outbuildings [in pink] is 9.

 

Toulouse Area

The test area is a suburban area with 2 kinds of buildings: big buildings (that corresponds to an hospital) and detached single family houses. There is no industrial area.

The proposed test area is about 1km x 1km. It is hilly, with a height difference of about 80m, which makes this area as challenging as Marseille.

The number of buildings [in black] is about 200. The number of new buildings [in green] is 23 (we have simulated the creation of 2 "housing estates" in the area, which is quite realistic), the number of old buildings [in red] is 15, the number of new outbuildings [in light green] is 9 and the number of old outbuildings [in pink] is 13.
