Traffic Information Detection in High Resolution Satellite Images of Busan Metropolitan Area

The congestion of traffic in the large city gets worse as time goes by. To solve this problem, wide road network monitoring is required continuously. Traffic information of the main road is gathered from vehicle detectors. But traffic information about ancillary roads like a highway are rarely obtained. Use of high resolution satellite imagery can get traffic information on roads without a vehicle detector for efficient traffic monitoring. It makes relived traffic congestion and broad road network monitoring to be able to determine traffic information. The authors selected the traffic information detection algorithm and applied it to QuickBird image over Seo-Myeon of 2004. Traffic information is divided into three classes. This study purpose that traffic information obtained from the high resolution satellite image is capable of monitoring traffic flow efficiently.
