Roadway network usage is measured for purposes as diverse as design, planning, maintenance, operation, management and research. Traditionally these measurements are made using groundbased sensors. The sensors provide a temporally rich dataset, but an individual sensor lacks spatial coverage, limiting their use and application. High-resolution imagery remotely sensed from satellite or airborne platforms is an attractive alternative that can potentially supplement and enhance the existing traffic
