Paper Abstract

Geographic Information System (GIS) are often old and so, some geographic elements are not represented. From satellite images and/or aerial images, we can detect cartographic elements to integrate them in the GIS and then upgrade it. Making it manually is a very long and tedious work, so computer based methods are needed. This paper presents several specific and automatic or semi-automatic methods to detect and identify several types of cartographic elements. These methods are fast and very efficient. A result evaluation is given to permit a manually correction for the non-confident elements.
