The best (Python) tools for remote sensing

By Emilius Richter August 2nd, 2022

I present the best (Python) tools for remote sensing and processing of satellite data, based on our practical experience with them at dida. For some I provide application examples including code.


Project proposals - the first step to a successful ML project

By Emilius Richter July 18th, 2022

For a software provider, the project proposal is the first step toward meeting the needs of the customer. In this article, I will describe the most important modules in machine learning project proposals.

Classification of Crop Fields through Satellite Image Time Series

By Tiago Sanona August 19th, 2021

Following the paper by Garnot et al., we utilize an altered version of the Transformer to classify crop fields from time series of satellite images. With this, we achieve better results than traditional methods (e. g. random forests) and with less resources than recurrent networks.

CLIP: Mining the treasure trove of unlabeled image data

By Fabian Gringel June 21st, 2021

Contrastive Language-Image Pretraining (short: CLIP) makes use of image captions to train a zero-shot image classifier. In this blog article I will give a rough non-technical outline of how CLIP works, and I will also show how you can try CLIP out yourself!

Using satellite imagery for greenfield exploration

By Fabian Dechent March 19th, 2021

In this article, we will have a look at the possibilities that remote sensing via spaceborne imaging provides for greenfield exploration, i.e. locating areas where the soil bears high grade minerals of interest.
