Skyline plays a pivotal role in mountainous visual geo-localization and localization/navigation of planetary rovers/UAVs and virtual/augmented realityapplications . We present a novel mountainous skyline detection approach wherewe adapt a shallow learning approach to learn a set of filters to discriminate between edges belonging to sky-mountain boundary and others coming from different regions . The proposedapproach is computationally faster than earlier methods while providing comparable performance and is more suitable for resource constrained platformse.g., mobile devices, planetary . rovers and UAVs. Our code is available at\url{https://://://www.g.com/TouqeerAhmad/skyline_detection.detection}. We compare our proposedmethods against earlier skyline detection methods using four different datasets using four . datasets .
