European Space Agency project “Sentinel for confidence in outdated maps: SentiMap”
Contract No. 4000139312/22/NL/SC/rp
Scientific manager: Dr.sc.comp. Ints Mednieks
Project objective: to build a technology prototype for detection of outdated areas in aerial images and land cover maps using Sentinel satellite imagery or any other up-to-date imagery
We will develop two prototype workflows (software) for identifying outdated areas in VHR aerial imagery and land cover maps (our aim is to detect change confidence, not specific land cover class changes).
Both workflows will produce a raster map layer with the same spatial resolution as the up-to-date Sentinel or VHR aerial dataset showing algorithmic confidence that information corresponding to the specific pixel is outdated.
