REMAP Harnesses Google and NASA Data for Ecosystem Mapping App

University of New South Wales’s (UNSW) has developed REMAP, a mapping tool that uses machine learning and archival Landsat data to map ecosystem change. The app uses machine learning to develop a map which users can train to classify specific ecosystem types by identifying a few pixels from Google Earth, or by uploading their own field data. From that little bit of data, REMAP can apply that information to recognise ecosystems in a selected area and then returns results that let users know the final extent of the ecosystem and how much it has changed over time. “In the past...
