Machine learning digitization of historical land use

Project Details


Machine learning techniques and the availability of georeferenced historical maps offer new opportunities to digitize historical land use. A cooperation between several Flemish authorities (INBO, department of agriculture and fisheries, Digital Flanders, VITO) aimed to do so for 3 or 4 historical maps, and analyse land use changes for a time span of approximately 200 years.
