Abstract : This thesis addresses the problem of the unsupervised extraction of line networks (roads, rivers, etc.) from remotely sensed images. We use object processes, or marked point processes, as prior models. These models benefit from a stochastic framework (robustness w.r.t. noise, algorithms, etc.) while incorporating strong geometric constraints. Optimization is done via simulated annealing using a Reversible Jump Markov Chain Monte Carlo (RJMCMC) algorithm, without any specific initialization.
We first propose to model line networks by a process whose objects are interacting line segments. The prior model is designed to exploit as fully as possible the topological properties of the network under consideration through potentials based on the quality of each interaction.
The radiometric properties of the network are modeled using a data term based on statistical measures.
We then extend this model to more complex objects. The use of broken lines improves the detection of network junctions and increases the accuracy of the extracted network.
Finally, we propose a hierarchical model of hydrographic networks in which the tributaries of a given river are modeled by a process of broken lines in the neighborhood of this river.
For each model, we accelerate convergence of the RJMCMC algorithm by using appropriate perturbations.
We show experimental results on aerial and satellite images (optical and radar data) to verify the relevance of the object process models.
