Abstract. Textons are known to be powerful operators in capturing textural properties of image regions. This paper proposes a new method to consistently combine structural cues as well as color information in an unified framework of color textons. They are used as features to detect buildings from optical imagery. Despite the simple classification algorithm, presented results are promising and show the usefulness of the proposed feature operator in remote sensing applications.
