How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
My background is within the fields of Surveying, Geomatics and Photogrammetry, Image processing and Remote Sensing. In particularly, I am interest in generation and updating digital maps automatically especially buildings and their outlines. This also included to derive Digital Surface Model (DSM) as well as generation, filtering and analysing of Digital Terrain Model (DTM). My research interests are within those areas which can be applied to a number of practical applications including Terrestr

The aim of this project is to create the required framework to allow the transformation of the Canning River location survey data captured by Dr. J. A. Ludwig Preiss from 1841 into today’s maps and to utilise visualisation techniques to analyse the results. The original survey data includes distances and bearing observations as well as 14 historica...
An automatic method for the regularisation of building outlines is presented, utilising a combination of data- and model-driven approaches to provide a robust solution. The core part of the method includes a novel data-driven approach to generate approximate building polygons from a list of given boundary points. The algorithm iteratively calculate...

In this work, a new filtering approach is proposed for a fully automatic Digital Terrain Model (DTM) extraction from very high resolution airborne images derived Digital Surface Models (DSMs). Our approach represents an enhancement of the existing DTM extraction algorithm Multi-directional and Slope Dependent (MSD) by proposing parameters that are...
