[VIDEO] INFORMAL SETTLEMENT DETECTION
One-third of the world’s urban population lives in informal settlements. People living in these areas often have no security of tenure, they often lack basic service and city infrastructure and housing does not often comply with planning and building regulations. Yet quite often, the location and size of these settlements is simply unknown. FDL Europe has combined EO and AI to create spectral and textural networks to automate mapping of these settlements to enable governments, aid organisations and businesses to better protect and support these communities, enable infrastructure planning and promote long term security.
