Is there more than meets the eye?
In this "Spot the GEO satellites" challenge, or spotGEO challenge, you are asked to develop an algorithm to detect Geostationary orbiting objects from simple png images (or frames) acquired by an unkown, low-cost ground-based telescope. Can you learn on how to cope with cloud cover, atmospheric/weather effects, light pollution, sensor noise/defects, star occlusions and more?
Check out the problem description, the dataset and the starter-kit.
This competition is organized by ESA's Advanced Concepts Team (ACT) in partnership with University of Adelaide.
