Information extraction from high resolution satellite images is very important for various purposes. The extracted information depicts the factual data about the identified objects, their positions, sizes, and the inter relationship between the objects. Here, the information extraction highlights extracting the general segmentation of Open Area, Water, Soil, Cloud and Snow, Buildings, Vegetation, Water Bodies, Road Center-lines, and so on, without any human intervention or interpretation. This paper presents a heterogeneous approach to extract information in a fully automatic manner using an algorithm, which employs satellite image processing of higher resolution satellite images taken from IRS (Indian Remote Sensing). Thus working on this approach has brought a futuristic research, which reveals how extracted information can be maneuvered.
