Image Analytics To Detect Green Vegetation

Image Analytics focuses on leveraging data science techniques to effectively detect changes between two images which are generally not possible with the naked eye.

In this Knowledge Sharing article, Srinivasan Sivaramakrishnan, Jose Cassio dos Santos, Diego Gallo, and Wei Lin detail how Image Analytics will help climate and environmental scientists carry out green land degradation warnings more effectively.

The authors explain the details of the methodology used to detect deforestation, intended to run in a Big Data environment to process large volumes of satellite imagery data, illustrating the results on a given region of the Amazonian forest, and discussing how to leverage external data sources to improve the accuracy and applicability of the algorithms.
