Abstract

This paper describes a contemporary literature review outcomes on automatic road extraction from aerial images. The main focus is on automatic road extraction, but it also discusses the possible extension on automatic extraction of other man-made objects, such as buildings, dams, swimming pools, etc. This paper first discusses the background of the topic, including the difficulties of the problem and the evaluation methods. Then five typical method currently proposed for road extraction are reviewed. Technical details are critically reviewed for future reference and comparison. The advantages and disadvantages of each approach are discussed. Based on this discussion, future work and possible methods are suggested.
