background purpose
The total length of the irrigation canals in the city is more than 4,000 km, and they are spread throughout the living area. There are many cases as well. According to field surveys of some rivers in the city, it is said that there are at least 200 “hot spots” where garbage accumulates in rivers.
These hotspots could only be identified by conducting direct field surveys by humans. This time, Solafune will provide a technology that can detect hotspots from satellite images and aerial photographs by AI image analysis, and will release the state of verifying its accuracy.
