Abstract
A new method is presented to extract road networks in urban area from high-resolution satellite images. The first step is to compare the consistency of gray value in different directions, so that the most consistent direction at every pixel is found. The texture descriptions in this direction consist of the feature vector of segmentation. An improved MRF model combined with the Expectation-Maximization algorithm is then applied to the feature space to separate roads from other objects unsupervisedly. After removing the irregular nonroad speckles in the segmented image, road segments may be detected easily. Connecting road segments finally produces the road networks. Experiments demonstrate that the proposed method may extract networks efficiently.
