So I have create a code to find the edge of a wall, through finding the intersect of the lines from the edges detected within a ROI. I have the coordinates of the lines in (x1,y1,x2,y2) form, for this case, I would have 3 lines from that point.


What I would like to do, is follow the lines along the edges and find another intersection. How do I go about doing this search? I would like to do this with limited regions of interest, whereby I perform canny only on the initial ROI, and also run canny on a certain ROI around the line.

Find the contours for your edge image and sort the contour points. Those points may help you to follow the line. You have the initial Point, simply you can look for a deviation in the X points for your horizontal line and Y for your vertical line.
