Extraction of Road from Satellite Images Using Morphology and Active Contours

Sheron Henry Christy

Abstract


Abstract

Road extraction from a satellite image plays a vital role in traffic management, urban planning and GPS navigation after updating maps. Many methods are available for road extraction, which include mathematical morphology, LEGION networks, road vectors, level set and mean shift, etc. A novel method is presented in this paper which uses mathematical morphology, filtering and active contours for extraction of selected part of road. The proposed algorithm is tested on various satellite images of urban areas.

Keywords: Morphology, edge detection, active contours
