Data-Science competition for ecological data

Scaling-up ecological patterns and processes is crucial to understanding the effects of environmental change on natural systems and human society. We are piloting a Data Science Challenge to help scientist do this better by using remote sensing from low flying airplanes to infer the location and type of trees in forests. This will allow forests to be studied in detail at regional to global scales.

Anyone is welcome to participate. Work as teams or individuals. Sign up.

The competition is open. The deadline for submissions is December 15th, 2017.
