The objective of the presented work is the automatic segmentation of urban areas from high resolution satellite images, such as MOMS-02 images or from aerial images taken from high altitude flights. The structure of urban areas, as seen from satellites or aeroplanes, is mainly characterized by three elements: the road network, the morphology of the built up areas and the distribution of the vegetation. There exist many types of road structures in large cities, which govern the local topology… CONTINUE READING
