Aerial photographs and satellite images are one of the resources used for earth observation. In practice, automated detection of roads on aerial images is of significant values for the application such as car navigation, law enforcement, and fire services. In this paper, we present a novel road extraction method from aerial images based on an improved generative adversarial network, which is an end-to-end framework only requiring a few samples for training. Experimental results on the Massachusetts Roads Dataset show that the proposed method provides better performance than several state of the art techniques in terms of detection accuracy, recall, precision and F1-score.
