Road Network Detection, Routing Information, and Travel Time Extraction
SpaceNet accelerates research and innovation in geospatial machine learning by developing and providing publicly available commercial satellite imagery and labeled training data, as well as open sourcing computer vision algorithms and tools.
The SpaceNet 5 challenge focused on road network detection and routing information and travel time extraction. Optimized routing is crucial to a number of challenges, from humanitarian to military. Satellite imagery may aid greatly in determining efficient routes, particularly in cases of natural disasters or other dynamic events where the high revisit rate of satellites may be able to provide updates far faster than terrestrial methods.
