Goes through large amounts of satellite ocean imagery looking for something interesting.
Satellite imagery is amazing. It makes it so easy to see things that just a short time ago could only be imagined. The only problem? There's so much of it. A person could spend days downloading large image files and looking through them for items of interest. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a utility that'd help do that? That's exactly what this project does.
How To Use It
It's a Python script with dependencies on OpenCV, NumPy, and SimpleJSON. Within most Python environments something like:
pip install opencv-contrib-python numpy simplejson
will make this happen for you.
It requires a SkyWatch API key to get access to satellite data (contact email@example.com to get yours). Help on using it is built in. Type
in the same folder in which it is installed to get the full rundown on how to make it work.
