Challenge: Cloud Detection Game - Increasing the amount of classified data for machine learning

Description: Cloud Eater is a fun game in which the player controls a "cloud-eating" airplane on a Sentinel-2 satellite image. Their objective is to mark all the clouds in the picture. By competing against each other, players try to achieve the best cloud marking accuracy. Acquired label data from players is statistically evaluated and used for creation of machine learning training datasets.

Challenge: Cloud detection

Description: Game for classifying clouds: 1) Opaque clouds: Clouds that are so dense that it is impossible to see through them. 2) Thick clouds: Medium dense clouds through which you can barely see the surface below. 3) Thin clouds: Almost transparent clouds through which you can easily see surface below. 4) Shadows: caused by clouds and those caused by surface terrain. Shadows may be on surface or on top of other clouds. 5) Land: All land areas that are not covered by snow or ice. This includes all types of vegetation, bare soil and man-made structures. 6) Water: all areas covered by water bodies (i.e. seas, rivers, lakes, ponds, etc.). 7) Snow.

Challenge: Protecting the forest

Description: The goal is to provide a web application that allows park rangers in madagascar to easily report information about a recent fire. The web app provides a very simple and mobile friendly interface, allowing the park ranger to carry out their work in the field. Input parameters are provided as sliders with pictograms for easy understanding and inputting that also allows non-english speakers to use the interface. The app is coded in javascript and node js. Some server code is also in python. The full source code is in the github repository. The code needs some more refinement before actual use however, since this was done during a hackaton.
