In this letter, a semi-automatic method for road network extraction from high-resolution satellite images is proposed. First, we focus on detecting the seed points in candidate road regions using a method of self-organizing map (SOM). Then, an approach to road tracking is presented, searching for connected points in the direction and candidate domain of a road. A study of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) using high-resolution satellite images is presented in this letter. Experimental results verified the effectiveness and efficiency of this approach.
