Abstract : The purpose of this work is to review and evaluate the performance of several algorithms which have been designed for satellite imagery in a geographic context. In particular we are interested in their performance with low-baseline image pairs like those which will be produced by the Pleiades satellite. In this study local and global state of the art algorithms have been considered and compared: CARMEN, MARC, MARC2 and MICMAC. This paper aims also at proposing a new benchmark to compare stereo algorithms. A set of simulated stereo images for which the ground truth is perfectly known will be presented. The obtained accuracy for the ground truth is more than a hundredth of pixel. The existence of an accurate ground truth is a major improvement for the community, allowing to quantify very precisely the disparity error in a realistic setting.
