Computer Recognition of Roads from Satellite Pictures

  title={Computer Recognition of Roads from Satellite Pictures},
  author={Ruzena Bajcsy and Mohamad Tavakoli},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics},
A program which recognizes real roads, their intersections, and objects which are road-like is presented. Although the work has been strongly motivated by the real roads as they are seen from the ERTS satellite, the visual model of a road can be used for recognition of any road-like objects. This model is structured in such a way that it can handle real roads as well as rivers and streams as they are seen on satellite pictures, tracks in bubble chambers, and veins under the appropriate… CONTINUE READING
