Developing an urban tree-detection algorithm.
PortfolioBack to portfolio
With Green City Watch, for the TreeTect project, I was responsible for the ideation, concept development, workshop facilitation, and to represent the customer to the development team as lead product owner. TreeTect is an open-source urban tree-detection algorithm using object detection to build AI-enabled city tree inventories. The prototype uses Very High-Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery to remotely “detect” the locations of trees, as well as a few health indicators of those trees.

“As a true collaborative partner, [Nadina] facilitated a series of discussions to help us internally align on priorities and build hypotheses to test with the prototype. These conversations were critical to ensuring the broad knowledge of our internal stakeholder groups was brought to bear on the prototype.*
