Title Texture segmentation as first step towards archaeological object detection in high-resolution satellite images of the Silvretta Alps
Abstract Since 2007, the Silvretta Archaeological Project in the high Alps on the Swiss-Austrian border has been investigating the prehistoric origins of alpine pasture economy.
