ESIP Lab Funded Projects Wins NGA Challenge
The ESIP-Lab funded Geoweaver project was one of the selected winners to the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) Agricultural Field Delineation from Satellite Imagery challenge. NGA sought ideas for a system that can rapidly, accurately, and automatically delineate agricultural field outlines from multiple satellite imagery sources every year, storing the results in an efficient data structure for year to year comparison and aggregation into common land units. They sought a system that could be applied to large homogenous fields typical of the Midwestern United States as well as heterogeneous fields typically found in sub-Saharan Africa.
Congrats to Dr. Ziheng Sun and Dr. Liping Di for the recognition! Learn more about Geoweaver here.
