Who uses the dzetsaka QGIS plugin ? A brief inventory

I identified about 24 works, including 8 in peer-reviewed journals, that use the dzetsaka classification plugin. When I made this plugin, it was only to reproduce my work at the Guiana Amazonian Park. I didn’t expect it would be so much used and have so many downloads (about 55k today !). I think must thank…

🏆 3 rewards including a first prize for my participation in Sentinel-Hub contest !

Sentinel-hub Playground is a wonderful tool to explore Sentinel images. I really appreciate its capability to deal with the temporal information, but custom scripts using temporal information are rare. Getting an image every 5 days allow to do wonderful things, such as having computed cloud free images in places where there is too much clouds…

Orfeo ToolBox (OTB) is an amazing tool for remote sensing. Some modules are not included in the distribution because they are produced by external users, but some of them are really interesting.

Get ROI values from raster and combine all CSV (remote sensing statistics with R)

EDIT in 2018 : More than two years later after this post, I just discover it back and realize how crazy I was to use R for Remote Sensing and for extracting ROI. I really suggest you to use Python or Orfeo Tool Box (Sample Extraction) to do this thing, and really not R !…

dzetsaka : how to make your first classification in Qgis ?

I just published the plugin dzetsaka : classification tool (github/qgis) on Qgis plugin server. This is a very simple plugin to make a fast but powerful classification. I used it for making numerous classifications of SPOT 5 scenes in the French Guiana Amazon forest. A project with samples (an old map (map.tif) and ROI (train.shp)) is available…
