What is the smallest size road that can be detected?

Planet can detect roads greater than 10 m (~3 pixels). We define a road as anything that a vehicle would be able to drive on. Road Detection performs best in fully developed or undeveloped urban areas, but also performs very well in rural locations as well. Dry riverbeds, mountainous regions, and forests can cause some false positives, but overall the Analytic Feed has been generalized to work at planetary scale.
