Hot Target Detection
Hot targets such as wildfires and volcanoes have a devastating impact on the planet, our infrastructure, and our personal health. Detecting hot targets early and monitoring their progress is important to successfully manage and control these situations. Recent studies have shown that wildfires can be detected in Landsat 8 imagery by using Top of Atmosphere (TOA) reflectance, but false alarms are frequent. In this project, I investigated hot target detection in satellite imagery using deep neural networks.
