ISPRS ITC Segmentation Contest Launched

Jan 29th → May 24th, 2024

Canopies play an essential role in biophysical functions of forest environments. Hence, individual tree delineation (ITD) from remote sensing (RS) data has been becoming one of the most important topics in forest RS research during past two decades. The International Society of Photogrametry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS)’s international contest of individual tree crown (ITC) instance segmentation aims to clarify the state-of-the-art of the tree crown instance segmentation from high-resolution earth observation images through a benchmarking study of different methodological approaches.

Abundant dataset gather around world is provided for model development. Recently, there are about 2000 1024×1024 image were published as training set and validation set. Besides, fine-grained ITC delineation masks in MS COCO format were provided at the same time. More data will be updated constantly during the contest.

The ISPRS ITC Segmentation Contest has be launched at Jan 29th, and will be ended at May 24th. The teams win the first-place, secon-place, and third-place prize win get 3k, 2k, and 1k dollars respectively.

Looking forward to your participation!
