In this paper we proposed the method for road extraction. The road extraction involves the two main steps: the detection of road that might have the other non road parts like buildings and parking lots followed by morphological operations to remove the non road parts based on their features. We used the K-Means clustering to detect the road area and may be some non road area. Morphological operations are used to remove the non road area based on the assumptions that road regions are an elongated area that has largest connected component.
