In remote sensing analysis, automatic extraction of road network from satellite or aerial images can be a most needed approach for efficient road database creation, refinement, and updating. In this paper, a method for automatic extraction of road centerline from high resolution satellite image is proposed. The proposed work consists of three stages: segmentation of road region, connected component-based operations used to extract the connected road component from segmented road region, and… CONTINUE READING
