Summary

Introduction

Solution

Figure 2. Aquaculture ponds are detected in satellite imagery using a deep learning object detection algorithm.
Figure 3. Solar power, mangrove habitat, and carbon storage is estimated for all ponds in the analysis area.
Figure 4. Pond productivity based on historic satellite imagery was used to identify non-production and low-productivity ponds that could be opportunity sites for solar and mangrove habitat.

Who should embrace this approach?
