Tubularity Tracking Based Automatic Road Detection from Sattelite Images

In this paper, a novel approach based on tubularity tracking and graph cuts for road detection from satellites images is presented. The most important feature of the proposed method is its local peak detection filter. Unlike the tubularity based road or road like curvilinear structure detection methods presented in the literature, proposed method samples local peaks from tubularity image by tracking the peak points based on Bayesian filtering in order to construct graphs and introduces no significant computational complexity.
