Develop an application for automated land co ver mapping applications


The advent of the Sentinel constellations provides an unprecedented wealth of Earth Observation data.

Concomitantly, cloud computing technologies allow accessing to high performance computing clusters that facilitate handling of dense data time series and use of advanced machine learning algorithms.

Land cover monitoring applications can benefit from such a new momentum in terms of timeliness and accuracy.


Working on a cloud computing environment from the Research and User Support (RUS) Service, an initiative from the European commission and ESA, your challenge is to develop a machine learning algorithm that can handle dense time series of Sentinel data to map as accurately as possible the land cover of a region of your choice.

You will have to procure a land cover data over your region of interest to calibrate and validate your results.

Your region of interest shall have at least 10 different cover classes.
