Classification of human actions under video surveillance is gaining a lot of attention from computer vision researchers. In this paper, we have presented methodology to recognize human behavior in thin crowd which may be very helpful in surveillance. Research have mostly focused the problem of human detection in thin crowd, overall behavior of the crowd and actions of individuals in video sequences. Vision based Human behavior modeling is a complex task as it involves human detection, tracking, classifying normal and abnormal behavior. The proposed methodology takes input video and applies Gaussian based segmentation technique followed by post processing through presenting hole filling algorithm i.e., fill hole inside objects algorithm. Human detection is performed by presenting human detection algorithm and then geometrical features from human skeleton are extracted using feature extraction algorithm. The classification task is achieved using binary and multi class support vector machines. The proposed technique is validated through accuracy, precision, recall and F-measure metrics.
