About this site


Hello! My name is Jeff Faudi.

I have been working for more than 20 years in Earth Observation. During the last 6 years, I have focused specifically on Artificial Intelligence applied to satellite images at Airbus DS GEO in Toulouse. During that time, me and my team have successfully delivered various optical detectors and databases for training and qualification. We have produced detectors for aircrafts, ships, vehicles, POL storage and wind-turbines on Pleiades and SPOT imagery.

I started this site as a collection of articles and ressources about detecting specific objects in satellite imagery with deep learning.

  • Characteristics of objects to detect
  • Corresponding datasets
  • Great models to start with
  • Tools that you should use
  • Discussion on strategies for next steps

This website is mostly a “note to self” but I hope that it could be helpful to others. I have probably made dozens of approximations and missed dozens of good articles, datasets or contributions. So, please send me your feedback!
