Abstract : The development of computer vision and the identification of objects in an image is important for many areas of scientific, medical, and commercial ventures. The available literature details many experiments and algorithms in these fields. In this study, the possibility of identifying road surfaces in aerial black and white photographs using texture analysis is examined. A system using texture that was successful in identifying road surfaces is presented as part of this research.
