Since 2011, the CNES' Pleiades constellation deliver daily imagery of the Earth at 50 cm resolution. The imagery is processed to be perfectly aligned with topographic maps and GPS signals.
A huge quantity of imagery has been collected and stored since the launch of Pleiades. Airbus Defence and Space enables easy access to this data through an efficient catalog, ordering, tasking and viewing API.
TO THE CHALLENGE
Airbus Defence and Space offers the participants to this challenge to access a preview of the next version of the viewing API that allows time-based requests.
Imagery over a city at 50 cm and multiple dates (from daily to monthly revisit) will be available instantly through this new API. The imagery will align perfectly allowing for automatic change detection or machine learning.
Which innovative service would you create if you could get easy access to regular satellite monitoring of cities?
For example, you could try to setup a predictive model based on change detection from imagery and other sources of information !
