Here’s an interesting look on the use of AI and machine learning in the geospatial world. Given the huge datasets found in remote sensing, it’s not surprising to see that field leading the way in cutting edge data analytics.
From a geospatial perspective, machine learning has long been in wide use. Remote sensing datasets have always been large, so the large data processing power of Machine Learning has been a natural fit. For example, processing satellite images using K Means or ISODATA clustering algorithms was one of the first uses of remote sensing software.
