Abstract.  An urban new construction land parcel detection method based on normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and built-up area presence index is proposed for high-resolution remote sensing images. The method consists of three main steps: construction land detection using NDVI and PanTex, false change removal, and new construction land parcel extraction. More specifically, a change proportion index is raised to convert the pixel-based change detection map to parcels in combination with a segmentation process. From experimental results validated using two cases of high-resolution optical satellite images, the proposed method is demonstrated to be efficient and achieves a per-object overall accuracy rate beyond 95%, significantly superior to the traditional postclassification change detection method. Furthermore, the proposed method avoids errors resulting from classification in the method of postclassification comparison.
