This website exists to support beginners and experts in applying deep learning to satellite and aerial imagery. The content here includes a monthly newsletter, YouTube videos & audio podcasts, resources on Github and Medium, groups on LinkedIn & X/Twitter, and a Discord channel. This material is produced by Robin Cole and Mikolaj Czerkawski because we are passionate about this topic and believe in the collective benefit of knowledge sharing.

The YouTube channel features both technically focussed discussions as well as general career guidance:


Github hosts resources covering both techniques for deep learning with satellite imagery, and a long list of datasets and other resources.

LinkedIn and X/Twitter groups

Robin regularly posts new discoveries and updates on both platforms:


You can connect with likeminded people on the Discord server. Discord is a chat platform similar to Slack which is free to join and has channels for topics including fo technical chat, jobseekers and job posts.
