Detecting rock glaciers using OBIA and deep learning

A joint paper entitled “Automated detection of rock glaciers using deep learning and object-based image analysis” led by B. Robson from the University of Bergen in Norway has been published in the journal Remote Sensing of Environment. This paper, which results from the collaboration with researchers from Norway, UK, Chile and Switzerland, describes a novel method based on deep learning and OBIA to extract the location and extent of rock glaciers in two mountain catchments. The study has also been highlighted at the eCognition blog.
