We investigate the use of co-occurrence texture measures to provide information on different building densities inside a town structure. We try to improve the pixel-by-pixel classification of an urban area by considering texture measures as a means for block analysis and classification. We find some interesting hints concerning the optimal dimension of the window to be considered for texture measures, as well as the most useful measures. Moreover, we show that it is possible to use medium-resolution readily available satellite synthetic aperture radar images for a more refined urban analysis than previously shown.
