The competition, “Road Detection and Routing Challenge,” seeks to derive road network and routing information from high-resolution satellite imagery.
CosmiQ Works discusses predicting 8-band visible and near-infrared multispectral images from 3-band RGB color images.
CosmiQ Works discusses some of the subtleties of comparing road network proposals to ground truth graphs. The lab also releases the APLS code to encourage exploration by interested readers.
CosmiQ Works and SpaceNet plan to launch a challenge on determining road networks and routing information.
Object segmentation algorithms are better at extracting building footprints in artificially colored satellite images than in their underlying grayscale images.
In this blog post we introduce a new method to artificially colorize grayscale satellite imagery.
