Models could be improved with the addition of landsat timeseries data. Is using such data outside the scope of this competition?

Hi @Johnowhitaker! To keep the playing field even, we want everyone to use only the datasets listed with the competition.

But, this is a great point. Let's do this: Anyone who wants to use certain *publically available* datasets, please post them here on this discussion thread.

We will review the suggestion, and then add them to the list of datasets that people are allowed to use for this competition.

I was thinking of using the EuroSat dataset http://madm.dfki.de/downloads

Would that be possible?

Hi @mabdelhack. Thank you for the suggestion. Because the competition is closing shortly, we don't want to introduce new data. But it is a good suggestion. For this competition you can use only pre-trained models in public libraries. Trained using only the data made available here.
