Paper Abstract

Due to the resolution of current satellite imagery (e.g. SPOT), the extraction of roads and linear networks from satellite data has become a feasible - although labour-intensive - task for a human expert. This interpretation problem relies on structural image recognition as well as on expertise in combining data sources external to the image data (e.g. topography, landcover classification). In this paper different knowledge sources employed by human interpreters are discussed. Ways to implement these sources using current knowledge-based tools are suggested. A practical case study of knowledge integration is described.
