In this paper we present a new method for the extraction of information about lines of communciation (LOC) from Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery. While other techniques have demonstrated some success in the extraction of LOC information, they generally suffer from the inability to handle a wide variety of LOC shapes or they lack the capability to globally integrate information in order to determine the location of the LOCs. In this paper we present the development of an alternative to previously tried methods which promises to do a better job of both local and global extraction of LOC information.
