Sports Facilities Detection

Detects baseball fields, tennis courts, soccer fields, and stadiums in cities and towns.


Sports Facilities Detection is a Processing Block for identifying sports facilities such as baseball parks, tennis courts, soccer fields, and stadiums in satellite images in .png or .jpeg or .jpg or .tiff format. Block can detect sports facilities in images with ground sampling distance (GSD) of 0.55m or less. Output is provided as images with detection bounding boxes overlayed on the sports facilites and detection details in a .json file.The block is trained on data-set obtained from South-Eastern Asia.

Supported workflows

Data platform:

Note: This block needs to be used without Raster Tiling. Pléiades Analytic is currently not supported.

Technical Description

The algorithm uses generative deep learning techniques and CNN-based Artificial Neural Network architecture to achieve the computer vision objective. The solution is built in Python and uses Tensorflow at backend as deep learning framework. The algorithm processes satellite images in GeoTIFF, TIFF, PNG, JPG or JPEG formats, with no limitations on image dimensions.

The use cases for this block are infrastructure monitoring, urban planning and construction.
