Computer Vision in Urban Studies: Theory, Techniques and Rules of Application
Recently, computer vision is becoming popular and effective tools for analyzing urban from urban planners and designers perspectives. On the other words, computer vision shed light on the urban modifications and changes in order to study and investigate urban changes rapidly. The application of computer vision not only can be applied as a macro view to pursuit any changes among inter-cities along aerial images but, it also can be utilized to provide micro view on intra-city activities along Closed Circuit Televisions (CCTVs). In macro perspective, computer vision can extract crucial information such as green per capita, footprint, fringe open land, urban/suburban built area, and water surface from Real Aperture Radar (RAR) images.
