This document describes a set of tools for evaluating building extraction results for aerial imagery, developed at the Digital Mapping Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University. These tools compute quantitative measurements of performance by comparing a manually measured reference model of a scene against an automatically generated model for the same scene. Summary metrics are generated for the entire scene, as well as building-by-building coverage statistics. The tools accept reference model and test model descriptions in the CMU Site Exchange format.
