Learning to Detect Roads in High-Resolution Aerial Images

  title={Learning to Detect Roads in High-Resolution Aerial Images},
  author={Volodymyr Mnih and Geoffrey E. Hinton},
Reliably extracting information from aerial imagery is a di fficult problem with many practical applications. One specific case of th is problem is the task of automatically detecting roads. This task is a difficult vi sion problem because of occlusions, shadows, and a wide variety of non-road objec ts. Despite 30 years of work on automatic road detection, no automatic or semi-au tomatic road detection system is currently on the market and no published metho d has been shown to work reliably on… CONTINUE READING
