Semantic Segmentation via Global Convolutional Network and Concatenated Feature Maps

Chuan Wang, Long Chang

Abstract

Most of the segmentation CNNs (convolutional neural network) based on the ResNet. Recently, Huang et al. introduced a new classification CNN called DenseNet. Then Jégou et al. used a sequence of building blocks for DenseNet to build their semantic segmentation CNN, called FC-DenseNet, and achieved state-of-the-art results on CamVid dataset. In this paper, we implement the design concept of DenseNet into a ResNet-based semantic segmentation CNN called Global Convolutional Network (GCN) and build our own network by switching every identity mapping operation of the decoder network in GCN to a concatenation operation. Our network uses less computational resources than FC-DenseNet to obtain a mean IoU score of 69.34% on CamVid dataset, and surpass the 66.9% obtained in the paper of FC-DenseNet.
