Abstract : The University of Maryland is one of the BAA contractors performing research on aerial image understanding for the RADIUS project. We are contributing model-based and context-based change detection (CD) and monitoring algorithms. Our principal points of focus during the reporting period have been: (a) monitoring movable objects (detection and counting of vehicles), (b) monitoring construction activities for modeled objects, and (c) developing automated image positioning schemes. We exploit geometric and context information derived from site models to accomplish these monitoring tasks. We also have placed special emphasis on the integration of our modules within the RADIUS Common Development Environment (RCDE) platform.
