Illegal mining activities Identification

5th Geospatial Intelligence Challenge (GI5)


Challenge Description

Sentinel-2 data are used to identify minerals from illegal mining activities (e.g. hydrothermal alteration associated with gold prospect locations). Illegal mining detection is also important to understand other illicit related activities (e.g. pollutants discharge).


The results below are divided into Software Repositories, Data Processing Pipeline Services and Data Product Repositories.  In case you would like to get in touch about specific results, please use the indicated reference code.


Software Repositories

There is currently one Software repository in the area of Illegal mining activities Identification. It is available on request. GitLab contains the data.
