Deep learning on edge: extracting field boundaries from satellite images with a convolutional neural network [article]

François Waldner, Foivos I. Diakogiannis
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we address the problem of field boundary extraction from satellite images as a multitask semantic segmentation problem.  ...  By minimising image preprocessing requirements and replacing local arbitrary decisions by data-driven ones, our approach is expected to facilitate the extraction of individual crop fields at scale.  ...  Acknowledgements We received funding from "Grains", a project of the Digiscape Future Science Platform. We are grateful to Dr Sophie Bontemps and Annelize Collet for sharing their data and.  ...
