The Tama Group demonstrates how they use machine learning to detect trash along beaches from VHR satellite imagery and generate density maps to aid in cleanup efforts. Traditionally it has been a human user who analyzes satellite imagery for changes, but this process is slow and time-consuming. Whether detecting trash on beaches or monitoring forest health, there is huge potential for computers, through the use of machine learning, to do the job faster and better than humans. Tama Group is using The eCognition software along with 30 cm Very High Resolution Satellite Imagery supplied by European Space Imaging to detect trash on beaches and generate a map that can be used by clean-up officials and organisers.
