Wind Turbines Detection

Wind Turbine Detection detects wind turbines locations on SPOT Display imagery.


Wind Turbine Detection detects wind turbines locations on SPOT Display imagery.

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

Supported workflows

Data platform:

Data blocks:

Note: SPOT Analytic with Pan-Sharpening (UP42) is currently not supported.

Technical information

This block uses a deep learning model for the classification of wind turbines.

Input parametersTiled imagery in GeoTIFF of any size. Expected ground resolution at 1.20 m. (i.e. WebMercator projection)
Output formatA GeoJSON file with each detected turbine as a specific polygon.
Training datasetThe algorithm has been trained on a 40,000 object dataset created specifically for this purpose.


The algorithm is expected to achieve a high level of recall. It is still considered as a Beta version.

Use cases

There are numerous use cases where it is important to know where wind turbines are located, typically energy production forecast and aircraft traffic regulations. 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 wind turbines.
