The project “Road Traffic Snapshot” concerns a possible future service for counting vehicles in
satellite images and generating traffic information based on these counts. The contents of the
project has been to: (i) Define user requirements and technical specifications for the service; (ii)
Make a service case implementation and; (iii) Validate and evaluate the implemented
methodology, and discuss possibilities for the evolution of the project. For the purpose of the
service case implementation, a service case area in the eastern central parts of Oslo has been
considered. Our results indicate that a future system for automatic road traffic counts is
feasible.
