Many methods have been proposed for building area extraction and building 3-D reconstruction from SAR images.However,the basic theory and process are diverse.To get better result,it is important for these methods to make full use of the information,including amplitude,polarization,and phase in SAR images.From this point of view,this paper reviews the current techniques and methods sequentially.The methods used for building area extraction are introduced by the order of used middle-resolution image,high-resolution image,time series images,fusion of SAR images and optical images.The methods used for building 3-D reconstruction are classified as radar photogrammetry and radar interferometry.Finally,some comments and promised ideas are given such as building height retrieval based on precise electromagnetic calculation and simulation,building area extraction based on accurate polarimetric decomposition techniques,and SAR image analysis based on new techniques from computer vision.
