In this paper we present a novel technique for automatic detection of road junctions in VHR satellite images. The detection is based on an initially detected road network using a differential ridge detector. This is a standard technique for road detection. However, the performance of the ridge detector degrades in the vicinity of junctions because the line model on which it is based does not hold anymore. We analyze the content and quality of the derived information layers of the ridge detector… CONTINUE READING
