Storage Tank Detection

Storage Tank Detection detects oil storage tanks locations on SPOT Display imagery.


Storage Tank Detection detects oil storage tanks locations on SPOT Display imagery.

Disclaimer: This block version currently uses a BETA version of the algorithm.

Supported Input

This block can be used with:

  • SPOT Display (Streaming)-> Raster Tiling
  • SPOT Display (Download) -> DIMAP -> GeoTIFF Conversion -> Raster CRS Conversion (CRS: EPSG:3857) -> Raster Tiling

SPOT Reflectance (Download) with Pan-Sharpening (UP42) is currently not supported.

Technical information

This algorithm is a classification deep learning model.

Input parametersTiled imagery in GeoTIFF of any size. Expected ground resolution at 1.20 m. (i.e. WebMercator projection)
Output formatGeoJSON file with each detected tank as a specific polygon
PerformanceThe algorithm is expected to achieve a high level of recall. It is still considered as a Beta version.
Machine TypeGPU

Use cases

There are numerous use-case where it is important to know where oil storage tanks are located, typically oil prices and energy independence. Some databases are available but they do not cover all locations and are not accurate.
Extracting their location from satellite imagery enables getting a current and precise view of the location. Revisiting at a later date also enables monitoring the construction of new oil storage tanks.
