Urban 3D Challenge

High-resolution satellite imagery is changing a bargain of a universe around us, as good as a approach we as humans correlate with a planet. However, a tender images do small some-more than bother a seductiveness — unless we can superimpose a covering that indeed identifies genuine objects.

Reliable labeling of buildings formed on satellite imagery is one of a initial and many severe stairs in producing accurate 3D models and maps. While programmed algorithms continue to improve, poignant primer bid is still compulsory to safeguard geospatial correctness and excusable quality. Improved automation is compulsory to capacitate some-more fast response to vital universe events such as charitable and disaster response. 3D tallness information can assistance urge programmed building labeling performance, and capabilities for providing this information on a tellurian scale are now emerging. In this challenge, we ask solvers to use satellite imagery and newly accessible 3D tallness information products to urge on a state of a art for programmed building showing and labeling.

USSOCOM is seeking an algorithm that provides reliable, involuntary labeling of buildings formed usually on orthorectified tone satellite imagery and 3D tallness data.

Competitors will accept an orthorectified tone image, Digital Surface Model (DSM), and Digital Terrain Model (DTM) for any geographic area of seductiveness (AOI). The DSM indicates a tallness of a earth, with objects such as buildings and trees included. The DTM indicates usually a tallness of a ground. Both should be approaching to embody some errors, and errors might be approaching to be identical in a provisional and sequestered information sets. The disproportion in a DSM and DTM indicates tallness of objects above ground. All contention files supposing are raster GeoTIFF images. Ground law building labels will also be supposing for a subset of a information to be used for training.

The tip 5 solutions on a provisional leaderboard will be asked to contention their program for eccentric analysis with sequestered exam information to settle a final leaderboard for esteem award. 

Software contingency be totally programmed and rest usually on a contention tone ortho image, DSM, and DTM supposing for any scene. 

Machine training models are excusable (and encouraged) as an contention as prolonged as a models are delivered such that a submitted program can be successfully executed on sequestered exam data. Software might rest on open source third-party libraries as prolonged as all compulsory dependencies are delivered with support such that a program can be successfully built and executed to endorse that it produces a submitted solution.
