Techniques

This section explores the different deep and machine learning techniques people are applying to common problems in satellite imagery analysis. Here are a couple of issues to keep in mind when getting started:

Classification

Assign a label to an image, e.g. this is an image of a forest. More complex case is applying multiple labels to an image.

Segmentation

Whilst classification will assign a label to a whole image, segmentation will assign a label to each pixel. Segmentation is typically grouped into semantic or instance segmentation. In semantic segmentation objects of the same class are assigned the same label, whilst in instance segmentation each object is assigned a unique label. Mask R-CNN is typically used for instance segmentation.

Object detection

Put a box around individual objects in an image. A good introduction to the challenge of performing object detection on aerial imagery is given in this paper. In summary, images are large and objects may comprise only a few pixels, easily confused with random features in background. An example task is detecting boats on the ocean, which should be simpler than land based detection owing to the relatively blank background in images, but is still challenging. Note that very small objects are often addressed using segmentation.

Object detection - buildings

Object detection - boats, planes & vehicles

Object detection - trees & green areas

Oil spill detection

  • MCAN-OilSpillDetection -> Oil Spill Detection with A Multiscale Conditional Adversarial Network under Small Data Training, with paper. A multiscale conditional adversarial network (MCAN) trained with four oil spill observation images accurately detects oil spills in new images.

Cloud detection & removal

Change detection

Monitor water levels, coast lines, size of urban areas, wildfire damage. Note, clouds change often too..!

Wealth and economic activity measurement

The goal is to predict economic activity from satellite imagery rather than conducting labour intensive ground surveys

Super-resolution

Super-resolution attempts to enhance the resolution of an imaging system, and can be applied as a pre-processing step to improve the detection of small objects. For an introduction to this topic read this excellent article. Note that SR techniques operate on a single image or a stack images/video frames.

Image-to-image translation

Translate images e.g. from SAR to RGB.

SAR

General image quality

Dimensionality Reduction

  • LEt-SNE -> Dimensionality Reduction and visualization technique that compensates for the curse of dimensionality

Self-supervised/unsupervised learning

The terms self-supervised & unsupervised learning are often used interchangably in the literature, and describe tehcniques using unlabelled data. In general, the more classical techniques such as k-means classification or PCA are referred to as unsupervised, whilst newer techniques using CNN feature extraction or autoencoders are referred to as self-supervised. Yann LeCun has described self-supervised/unsupervised learning as the 'base of the cake': If we think of our brain as a cake, then the cake base is unsupervised learning. The machine predicts any part of its input for any observed part, all without the use of labelled data. Supervised learning forms the icing on the cake, and reinforcement learning is the cherry on top.

Mixed data learning

These techniques combine multiple data types, e.g. imagery and text data.

Pansharpening

Image fusion of low res multispectral with high res pan band.

NVDI - vegetation index

Image registration

Image registration is the process of transforming different sets of data into one coordinate system. Typical use is overlapping images taken at different times or with different cameras.

Terrain mapping, Lidar & DEMs

Measure surface contours.

Thermal Infrared

ML best practice

Image formats, data management and catalogues

Cloud Optimised GeoTiff (COG)

A Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG) is a regular GeoTIFF that supports HTTP range requests, enabling downloading of specific tiles rather than the full file. COG generally work normally in GIS software such as QGIS, but are larger than regular GeoTIFFs

STAC - SpatioTemporal Asset Catalog specification

The STAC specification provides a common metadata specification, API, and catalog format to describe geospatial assets, so they can more easily indexed and discovered.

State of the art

  • Compute and data storage are moving to the cloud
  • A combination of batch processing on clusters and serverless functions are common for routine compute tasks
  • Custom hardware is being developed for rapid training and inferencing with deep learning models
  • Traditional data formats aren't designed for processing on the cloud, so new standards are evolving such as COGS and STAC
  • Read about how Planet and Airbus use Google Cloud as their backend
  • Google Earth Engine and Microsoft Planetary Computer are democratising access to huge compute platforms
  • Whilst the combo of python and keras/pytorch are currently preeminent, new python libraries such as Jax and alternative languages such as Julia are showing serious promise

Free online computing resources

Generally a GPU is required for DL, and this section lists a couple of free Jupyter environments with GPU available. There is a good overview of online Jupyter development environments on the fast.ai site. I personally use Colab Pro with data hosted on Google Drive

Google Colab

  • Collaboratory notebooks with GPU as a backend for free for 12 hours at a time. Note that the GPU may be shared with other users, so if you aren't getting good performance try reloading.
  • Also a pro tier for $10 a month -> https://colab.research.google.com/signup
  • Tensorflow, pytorch & fast.ai available but you may need to update them
  • Colab Alive is a chrome extension that keeps Colab notebooks alive.

Production

For an overview on serving deep learning models checkout Practical-Deep-Learning-on-the-Cloud. There are many options if you are happy to dedicate a server. For serverless consider AWS lambda.

Rest API on dedicated server

A conceptually simple approach to serving up deep learning model inference code is to wrap it in a rest API. That can be implemented in python (flask or FastAPI), and hosted on a dedicated server e.g. EC2 instance. Note that making this a scalable solution will require significant expereince.

Framework specific model serving options

If you are happy to live exclusively in the Tensorflow or Pytorch ecosystem, these are good options

NVIDIA Triton server

AWS

Google cloud

  • For storage use Cloud Storage (AWS S3 equivalent)
  • For data warehousing use BigQuery (AWS Redshift equivalent). Visualize massive spatial datasets directly in BigQuery using CARTO

Image annotation

If you are performing object detection you will need to annotate images with bounding boxes. Check that your annotation tool of choice supports large image (likely geotiff) files, as not all will. Note that GeoJSON is widely used by remote sensing researchers but this annotation format is not commonly supported in general computer vision frameworks, and in practice you may have to convert the annotation format to use the data with your chosen framework. There are both closed and open source tools for creating and converting annotation formats.
