The DSTL Kaggle competition just closed. And our 2-person team placed 22nd! The top 6% of the current competitors.
I'm hoping to take the notes I posted here eventually and our data pipeline code and bundle them together for some kind of startup guide for beginners to start playing with satellite data.
Neither of us knew how to deal with satellite data before the competition, entered a Kaggle competition, or wrote a model that does image segmentation/ semantic segmentation/ image segmentation + classification (I don't know the right buzzwords!). But because of this class and the Kaggle's public community, we (quickly!) learned enough to be competitive! Really big thanks @jeremy and @rachel for making democratizing the tech and nurturing this community !!!
