Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite images are products which are very useful for assessing humanitarian situations following a disaster or a crisis. When disaster or conflict hits, generally several square kilometers on Earth surface are involved. Having a high resolution and an extended surface, the scenes, from which the information is extracted, become huge in the number of pixels. Built-up structures are the first visible objects from these images which give information about the situation. In this paper, an interactive image mining paradigm is presented for detecting structures of interest in gigapixel images. The proposed approach is tested for refugee tents detection in submetric panchromatic image.
