be generated by comparing existing object data given in a geographic
information system (GIS) with remote sensing image data samples.
Applicable methods are for instance patch-based appearance and shape

The project will be carried out in co-operation with several remote
sensing research groups and companies concerned with disaster management
headed by the German Aerospace Research Center DLR as part of the
DeSecure project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Research and
