Here is how it works
Permafrost creates a variety of complex polygonal patterns. They are too complex for automated image analysis. As part of the UndercoverEisAgenten you are mapping a set of drone images together with other volunteers. By doing so, work as a team to help an artificial intelligence to improve image pattern classification and, which is an important contribution to permafrost research.
The collected data is important to understand the consequences of climate change in the Arctic. The acquired data will help researchers to verify and improve climate models. Furtheron, we hope to support Arctic residents in risk assessments of their environment.
Below you can see what a mapped drone image might look like.
