A simple solution to detect change in time-series data is to directly compare raw RGB values of satellite images. However, due to different season, lighting and noise, the pixel values across time-series data can be quite different even in areas with no disaster impact. Therefore, many research efforts have been explored to improve disaster. Using Convolutional Neural Networks to detect features in satellite images. 1. Introduction. In the previous blog post we have seen how to build Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) in Tensorflow, by building various CNN architectures (like LeNet5, AlexNet, VGGNet-16) from scratch and training them on the MNIST, CIFAR-10 and Oxflower17 datasets Change detection is an important task in computer vision and video processing.
