Coastline mapping with python, satellite imagery and computer vision.
The UK Hydrographic Office Data Science and Remote Sensing teams have used European Space Agency Sentinel-2 imagery to create accurate coastline vector data. We use geospatial processing and computer vision in Python to produce the coastline vector dataset which can be run anywhere in the world and adjusts automatically to local satellite image conditions.
