    This paper describes a system for analysis of aerial images of urban areas using multiple images from different viewpoints and its evaluation. The proposed approach combines bottom-up and top-down processing. In this paper the emphasis is on the discussion of the experimental evaluation. To evaluate statistically the performance of the system, a set of 100 realisations of 5 images from different viewpoints was used, which was generated by combining real and ray-traced images. The experiments show a significant improvement of reliability and accuracy if multi-view imagery is used instead of single-view.
