- Enter https://geoimagenet.ca into browser address to get to Webpage information.
- To see the platform without a login. Click on "Platform" and select "see the annotations".
Please note that no Pleiades images are visible at this point.
- With a login id, you can access the platform with Pleiades images.
Click on "Login" (upper right corner) to enter Id and password given by GeoImageNet administrator.
To request a login, click on "Contact" (upper right corner).
- Once logged, the first glance shows the position and number of images on the map.
- Choose a "Taxonomy" in browser (right column) and click on the eye icon to make annotation visible.
In example, the "Objects" taxonomy is selected and all existing annotations are made visible.
- Zoom in to see coverage of a chosen image and indication and label of annotation.
- Zoom in more to clearly see annotation and label at high resolution.
- To add annotation, select class.
In example, the selected class is "parking lot".
Click on Plus icon (top menu above taxonomy).
Go to item and drawn a polygon over the proper area. In example, see two points in light blue.
- To complete annotation, close the polygon.
In example, light blue square with "parking lot" label.
- Click "Dataset" menu (upper menu above the map) to download the deep learning training data.
Please note, that a dataset will be available only when a large amount of annotations are available.
- Click "Model" menu (upper menu above the map) to upload a deep learning model.
Model can uploaded to the platform, tested on GeoImageNet testing dataset and results can be published in benchmark.
- Click "Benchmark" menu (upper menu above the map) to see results of tested models of all research collaborators.
GeoImageNet is a collaborative research platform for researchers from different backgrounds who wish to develop innovative algorithms for the exploitation of very high resolution (VHR) satellite images for various applications.
What we do :
GeoImageNet is a unique collaborative initiative involving remote sensing researchers, developers of digital research platforms, artificial intelligence experts and professionals dedicated to adding value to satellite imagery.
How we do it :
By facilitating the creation and download of annotations on Pleiade images. The imagery used to build this database includes more than 10,000 km2 of Pleiades images covering Canada's major cities as well as various other natural and anthropic environments (forests, wetlands, mining sites, agricultural areas, etc.). These annotations are based on a taxonomy containing many objects and land covers.
Why we do it :
To promote deep learning research on OE data for detection, segmentation and others automatic task. This will allow researchers from diverse institutions to collaborate in a more structured and effective manner for the application of deep learning in remote sensing and to develop new value-added products based on THR satellite images. This synergy will facilitate making more progress in research, both in remote sensing applications and in the development of learning algorithms.
- Support OGC standards (WMS, WFS, WPS)
- GeoServer to share, process and edit geospatial data
- Birdhouse: Web Processing Services
Connect to the platform :
If you want to take a look and do not have a login, see the annotations on a base map of Canada (no Pleiade images available without a login).
You can request a login at firstname.lastname@example.org or just log in to https://10.30.90.187/platform.
Please note that the login will give you access to the demo version and that no annotation will use in dataset, the production platform will be available soon.

As related to the satellite images :
Use is restricted to agreement agreed by the users.
A CRIM pre-release version is deployed on an experimental server and integration testing is performed to make sure the platform is in working order.
If everything is in order, the pre-release version becomes the release version and is deployed at the University of Sherbrooke.
First official release of the GeoImageNet.
We are now at the end of Year 1. Code will be availabe during Year 2.
