This is not easy in general, especially with parking lots in the image. We can't develop what will have to be a sophisticated algorithm for you and can only refer you to papers that have sucessfully done this already:,%20Aerial%20Images,%20Remote%20Sensing,%20Buildings,%20Roads,%20Terrain,%20ATR See these sections
