Description
Agriculture is shifting to precision farming methodologies, allowing to use less water and chemicals and reducing its environmental impact. Technology has been a key factor in this shift: access to new high-resolution and high-frequency satellite data is revolutionising the way information about fields and crops are gathered, managed, and used to make informed, data-driven decisions. The first step in gathering information about a specific crop is to identify the field from satellite imagery. This is the focus of this challenge.

Guidelines
Detect the contour boundary of the cultivated fields. The solution should take the satellite image as input and give a monochromatic output of the same resolution containing only the contour outlines and the geographic metadata. Use the best spectral band(s), pre-processing and contour boundary detection strategy to accomplish the task. The solution should work both on the provided sample data and new data. Evaluation Out of 675 fields in test dataset, how many crop id labels you get correct will you give you scoring on leaderboard For more information, there is a document in the Dataset known as (Competition Data Information.docx) Outputs should follow the format: Field_Id,Crop_Id_Ne 3,2 4,4 3,5 Etc.
