→ PROBA-V Super Resolution
Enhance the vegetation payload performances
In this competition you are given multiple images of each of 78 Earth locations and you are asked to develop an algorithm to fuse them together into a single one. The result will be a "super-resolved" image that is checked against a high resolution image taken from the same satellite, PROBA-V. The 'V' stands for Vegetation, which is the main focus of the on-board instruments. Can you enhance the vision of PROBA-V and help us advance the accuracy on monitoring earths vegetation growth?
