Fully-automated system extracts information on smallholder farms from raw satellite data

Having invested strongly in creating an automated satellite image processing system, the first results of the STARS project are becoming visible. The project, led by the Faculty of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente, is now two years on its way. After several cycles of designing, implementing, debugging and establishing a collection of algorithms, the researchers are confident that a fully-automated Very High Spatial Resolution (VHSR) satellite image processing system is now in place.
