Territorial Planning

DEIMOS Engenharia and Deimos Space UK have developed in the last years a suite of tools aimed at Land Use/Land Cover (LULC) mapping tool, feature extraction and LULC change detection.

These components provide a suite of tools ideal for institutions with territorial planning responsibilities that have a wide range of LULC mapping needs that can include generic baseline LULC maps or thematic maps for specific features (e.g. roads, roundabouts) and respective changes. They require the development of LULC, feature and LULC change maps based on several remote sensing sources, covering high and very high-resolution imagery, and with diverse classification schemes.

The final version of the application will make these tools available through a web-based application where the user is able to customize the required steps: 1 - Define the type of imagery to use 2 - Define the classification scheme 3 - Use existing or new training data 4 - Compare classification algorithms 5 - Visualize outputs in map, graph and teable forms 6 - Edit output to correct classification errors 7 - Rerun the classification

The first version of the pilot will allow the user to classify Sentinel 1B or 2A imagery for the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, using an already trained model.
