Updating Irrigation Maps

The global distribution of irrigated areas is unknown.  An updated map is required to determine the impact of agriculture on local water resources.  Using Landsat 7 satellite images at 30 meters resolution and the known irrigated areas from the year 2000, we train a neural network algorithm to map irrigated areas today.  

Special thanks to Prof. Paolo D'Odorico for providing this idea.
