Piyush Yadav, Dipto Sarkar, Dhaval Salwala, Edward Curry, “Human Assisted Artificial Intelligence Based Technique to Create Natural Features for OpenStreetMap“, International Conference on Geographic Information Science (GIScience) 2020.
In this work, we propose an AI-based technique using freely available satellite images like Landsat and Sentinel to create natural features over OSM in congruence with human editors acting as initiators and validators. The method is based on Interactive Machine Learning technique where human inputs are coupled with the machine to solve complex problems efficiently as compare to pure autonomous process. We use a bottom-up approach where a machine learning (ML) pipeline in loop with editors is used to extract classes using spectral signatures of images and later convert them to editable features to create natural features.
