Abstract

In this data paper, we propose an open dataset (named SROADEX) containing more than 527,000 image tiles of 256 × 256 pixels stored in the lossless PNG format, tagged at pixel level with road information. The dataset covers approximately 8650 km2 of the Spanish territory, is divided in train, validation and test sets and can be used by researchers and professionals for training other extraction solutions and benchmarking additional models. The SROADEX dataset is available under a CC-BY 4.0 licence and can be freely downloaded from the Zenodo repository.
