Abstract

One of the challenges in extracting road network from aerial images is an enormous amount of different cartographic features interacting with each other. This paper presents a methodology to detect the road network from aerial images. The methodology applies a Deep Learning (DL) architecture named U-Net and a fully convolutional Auto-Encoder for comparison. High-resolution RGB images of an urban area were obtained from a conventional photogrammetric mission. The experiments show that both architectures achieve satisfactory results for detecting road network while maintaining low inference time once DL networks are trained.
