Our Planet is at risk. Why are we not already at scale (in the development community, at least)?

Keith Garrett, Senior Geographer, World Bank

Commercial satellite imagery is incredibly useful to every phase of economic development and monitoring the SDGs. The list of use cases and examples grows every year. Yet most of the use remains in the form of isolated projects and pilots. At a basic level, the technology has been there for decades. The SDGs specify what we need to watch. Imagery and the tools to help exploit it get better year after year, month after month. Massive technological improvements occur almost annually. Why isn’t the development community already at scale? What holds us back? This talk will look a little more closely at how this corner of the commercial imagery market works, and when and why it doesn’t.

Using Satellite Imagery and AI to Assist in Mapping the World

Drishtie Patel, Program Manager - Maps and Location, Facebook

Over the past 2 years a team at Facebook has been using machine learning algorithms and satellite imagery to create various map data products including population density and a roads map layer at country scale. In addition to helping with Facebooks connectivity efforts and disaster response, these processes have helped to power human mappers to edit and validate map data in OpenStreetMap much faster and with higher accuracy. Much of the developing world is not mapped and mapping at the scale and quality needed for both NGO's and Tech companies is challenging to do manually. This talk will cover how the team is focused on bringing AI and commercial imagery to an already vibrant and active Open Source Community.

Providing Better Denominators for Development Sector Work

Io Blair-Freese, Associate Program Officer - GD Strategy, Data & Analytics, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

This session will introduce the Geospatial Reference, Infrastructure and Demographic Data for Development (GRID3) Program, a partnership between UNFPA, WorldPop/Flowminder, CIESIN, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and DFID. GRID3 aims to collect sub-national data on boundaries, placenames, settlements, and populations, all of which are vital to a wide range of development and humanitarian objectives. These data are essential for needs assessments, planning and budgeting; equitable distribution of public resources and services; monitoring the incidence, prevalence and spatial transmission of disease; targeting interventions and tracking population trends to assess progress; natural resource protection and many other public functions. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provide a simple way of linking many kinds of geospatially-referenced data and a highly intuitive way of communicating the results of data analysis, through a medium -- maps -- that allow decision-makers without data expertise to understand sophisticated and rigorous findings.

Maritime domain Awareness and the Intelligence cycle for fisheries

Pablo Trueba, Senior Fisheries Analyst, OceanMind

Intelligence in fisheries is the gathering of relevant information and the provision of actionable insights that empowers decision-makers to take action. Intelligence can include activity of fishing and fishing-related vessels of interest (activity of interest) and other activities that surrounds and/or impacts these extractive activities in the areas of interest. Fishing is the most complex at-sea activity taking place across the world’s oceans and affects food security and human livelihoods. Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing is the major threat to fish stocks sustainability , therefore, identifying and responding to IUU fishing threats in a timely manner is a critical factor. OceanMind uses the standard Intelligence Cycle (Planning/Collection/Processing/Analysis/Dissemination in a closed 5 stages cycle) to provide with the most comprehensive approach to detect and report risks using Satellite data that can be utilised to quickly identify IUU threats compared with traditional at-sea patrols, and at the same time allows the allocation of such assets in the most effective forward planning

How to calculate people from Space?

Georgy Potapov, Founder, GeoAlert

We are living it the very fast changing urban environment. Even in more-european-like countries like Russia (>17sq.km) we face inaccurate data regarding urban development and a distribution of population. Partly the problem can be solved using satellite imagery - the tricky thing is not just to segmentate image to get the building mask, but to fill each building feature with the semantic attributes. To get this information on a grand scale researchers use another algorithms with multi-angle imagery or shadows and walls segmentation to remodel building heights which is much faster than ground observation or official cadastral database.

In Geoalert we are providing a pipeline powered by GBDX Big Data platform to collect information about urban environment including buildings, roads, parking lots and more...
