If you want the color edges, then the most sensible thing is to measure Delta E - the color difference - between a pixel and its neighbors. I just gave the algorithm a few days ago here: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/73635#answer_83593 An edge will have a high delta E while non-edges will have low delta E. I now have a demo script of this. Let me know if you want me to post it.

Mean shift filter is not giving satisfactory result. And DEM code is giving errors which I am not able to fix. Please help.

Also, I tried Sobel filter and getting decent results with it..only if i could be suggested one or two ilters like sobel(not canny) so that i could compare and proceed further.

There are few files in the file-exchange http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/ so do some search there, you might find what you need.
Or, you can convert the colored image to binary one, then use the function (edge).

Thanks for the script, I think this will definitely be helpful to me. I need to construct a geometry through this So I need to get the Coordinates of the boundaries created in the image as well as the colour code to know about the orientation. Please help me how can I convert the output that I have got to a matrix containing the required information.
