Abstract  In this study,the remote sensing images of WorldView-2,GF-2,and GF-1,which cover Xiamen Software Park,were selected for study.A building and shadow extraction process suitable for different images was constructed,which applied object\|oriented approach and morphology ideas combined with spectral,shadow and shape constraints.Subsequently,the building heights of three different spatial resolutions of 0.5 m,1 m and 2 m were estimated by using the shadow length estimation method.Finally,the influence of image spatial resolution on building extraction accuracy and building height estimation accuracy was evaluated quantitatively.The main conclusions are as follows:(1) The improved building and shadow extraction process achieves higher extraction accuracy,but accuracy decreases slightly with the decrease of spatial resolution of images;(2) With the decrease of spatial resolution,the accuracy of building height estimation decreases gradually,but it does not show linear relationship.At the resolution increases from 1m to 0.5 m,the accuracy of building height estimation increases faster than the resolution increases from 2 m to 1 m;(3) GF-1 is more suitable for height estimation of high\|rise buildings and GF-2 is suitable for middle and high rise buildings,while WorldView\|2 has higher estimation accuracy for building height in different height ranges.
