Call for Data: A Global Database of Tree Crown Footprints from RGB Imagery

Hello! I am putting together a benchmark dataset for tree crown segmentation - do you have data and would you like to join our effort?

Call for data: we're looking for exact tree crown segmentations (rather than bounding boxes) collocated with some form of (very) high resolution aerial imagery - drone or satellite. Segmentation derived from TLS or ALS data is absolutely ideal, but high quality manual labels are also ok. 

In return, we can offer:
- Co-authorship on a publication (likely at some point in 2023)
- Access to the dataset for analysis prior to the full release

If there's anything else you think that I/we might be able to offer in return, feel free to ask!
