In this competition, you are given a list of maize fields associated with images from Planet and Sentinel-2 satellites. Original positions are considered images' centers as (0,0) and you are given a displacement vector for each field in the training set and you are required to predict these vectors for each vector in the test set. To illustrate more the displacement vector, the following is an image with original position as blue point, corrected position as red point and the displacement vector between the two positions in yellow:
You are provided with several data sources in this competition and you may use any (or all) of them in your solution including:
Planet Lab images:
These are images captured using Planet Lab Satellite in ~4.7 m resolution in different timestamps. Each image is 84X84 pixels and has RGB channels only. It should help you identify the farm boundary and what is laying inside beside Maize (like houses and trees).
These are images captured using Sentinel-2 Satellite in ~10 m resolution in different timestamps. Each image has 16 bands with 41X41 pixels for each of 12 months, giving a total of 192 image bands. The band names are provided in the ImageBands.docx file. These images are aligned on the same area and centered around the same center as Planet Lab images. It should help you in yield estimation for Maize fields.
These are variables captured during the yield estimation process in the field which includes:
All these data sources are available for training, test and auxiliary data. The annotation process applied on the auxiliary data is slightly different from what is applied on both training and test data but we believe it should be useful when added in the training phase.
External data is allowed in this competition, but before a dataset can be used it must be requested in a discussion post, at which point we will review it and add it to the list of allowed datasets. 6 weeks into the competition we will stop accepting requests for additional datasets.
